I've been using a van staal for a while now and recently purchased a 706Z. I like the reel but what I don't like is the size of the line roller. It is a lot smaller than the VS. Also, there is a little metal point that is right in front of the line roller. I feel that it hurts me when I go to pick up my line. Does any one know why it is there? Also, does any one know if they make a larger line roller to fit the 706Z? Thanks for the help.
