I had tried a couple different releases and was not happy.
OR-16 OR-18 and had trouble with braided line slipping through the release. Not only did you fight the fish but you were always fighting the board.
With the Sam's snap the rod tip and the front releases and you just fighting the fish. Just make sure you have a OR-16 with the pin on the back.
Works GREAT!

This is exactly what I wanted to hear! I'll be ordering up two for my boards. Thanks!
