The bite alarm sound is way way too quiet, it needs its independent volume control. Line clip settings are all over place, hardly the same two or three casts in a row. I had a clip set at 22yds when I cast it stopped at 11yds. Tested this over many clip settings and casts and it is all over the place. The Sonik Xtractor 5000 reels the whole spool and everything rotates, and on other reels the line on the spool stays where it is and the spool goes up and down inside it, looks most odd. Think all reels will need looking at.
