WHAT IS A LEVELER AND WHY DO I NEED ONE?

The leveler is a device that prevents backlash and tangles on DRAG lure machines.  Backlash is what happens when the line comes in faster than the motor is turning the spool.  Running these machines is accomplished by a momentary button that you touch-release, touch-release, touch-release, the whole time you’re running.  On the release, the motor slows down.  Because the spool is attached to it, the spool also slows down, however the string does not because it has momentum and it causes a series of loops that fall over each other; they’re not knotted so you can pick them apart, but it does take a good hour to do so, effectively ending your running session.

The leveler prevents backlash and its consequential tangles by moving the line back and forth as the line is coming in and back onto the spool – very similar to a levelwind mechanism on a fishing reel.  The line still makes loops, but the leveler trains the incoming line over the loop and holds it down instead of allowing the loop to get tangled into the next loop. The leveler runs constantly, from the moment you turn on the master power switch so even when you’re slowing down at the end of the run, the leveler keeps running and managing the line.
