JBL Mid-Handle Help

Was wondering should I use single wrap or double wrap with a reel? Also when I engage the shaft into the mech it takes some force is this normal for the m8 mech's.







Thanks for the Help

Lots of force is normal with that mech.

1 wrap will put the tip of the shaft 5 gun lengths 20' from you based on 50" wrap/shaft/gun length.

Thanks for the reply. but by force i mean really hard to engage into the mech, compared to my mako and jbl magnum.

I have no first hand experience. But I've heard other guys say the trick is to slightly depress the trigger when engaging shaft into mech. Good Luck.
