Just bought one on ebay 5 inch It is not the new one. (still in the mail) Anybody use/have an adcock heard they are nice. Also I am curiuos to see the difference betwen a 4.5 sheffield and the 5 inch adcock. Any comments?

I have an older one standard size.and really like it . seems like the older reels get the call. my islander pacific steelheader was my first pin and a favorite.

The Stanton is a great reel. I've never used on personally but I do know of a few people that use/d them and I've heard nothing but good things about the reels.

I've got an older one that I dust off and use every once in a while. Good reel, works fine, in fact works as well as some pricier reels of mine. One drawback with Stantons is the line can get inside the spool and wind around the pin. Not fun. By not filling the spool anywhere close to the top you can cut down on the frequency of this happening.

The other alternative, is to use a heavier mainline.
Had a similar problem with a Stanton I used about 20 years ago.
All I had to do was bump up two more lbs. test. Problem was solved.
I liked to keep the mainline about 1/8" below the rim of the spool where it sits against the backplate. Casts much better that way.

The larger the clearance between the back plate and the spool, the less frequent you will have debris jamming up your reel.
The decision becomes, what is easier to control, jamming up your spool with line or debris?
