    I got a 16a on a CE900 Monster and the reel keeps slipping. i have it deckhand style with cork under heat shrink around where i want the reel to sit. i keep noticing that the reel is shifting right and left and even alittle up when im fishing it threw out the day. Has anyone else had this problem if so how did you fix it. I may just be to carful about crushing the blank and not tightening it all the way but what do you guys think

    I'd say tighten it up cautiously. Enough to keep it in place.

    CAREFULLY!

    Yea thats why I dont want to wrench down on it. I know that the UCs have thin blanks and that is the last thing i want to do. Do you think a cork puppy would help?

    Never used one. I only fish old glass. They're way more forgiving when it comes to the clamp.
    Is the shrink wrap moving?

    It’s has happened to me on the same rod and Calstars. You will crack the blank if you over tighten it. Now I use this type of tape, it’s cheap and durable. I over lap the area twice with the tape and I’m good. No more slip. Holds up well after rinsing the rods. Hope this helps.

    On my Rce monster I use a cork puppy. Another solution is to wrap a 4” section of cord, then shrink wrap over it for extra cushion under the clamp.

    Cork Puppy’s and Trinidad’s don’t get along too well. You should be able to get it tight enough without cracking the blank with the factory clamp. Tighten down evenly and keep an eye on it as the cork compresses.

    No cork puppy or tuna cord and shrink wrap, it will be too thick of a section for the stock clamp and screws.

    Use the magic tape and done.

    i was having the same issue with a Tranx 500. I went to Fishermans Hardware in HB and they put a small piece if cork tape on the inside of the clamp and a small piece of corktape on the foot/base of the reel and it tightened up perfectly.

    Remove the shrink wrap and replace it with electrical tape
