ESP. cheap, effective and reliable. Ultra simple to use. Always go with the KISS principle.

My take on this, I expect the line was trapped behind the spool for this to happen, if the spool was set reasonably loose that is.
Also I expect the rod tips were fairly low to the water, therefore the direct pull on the line would make the butt rest slide and separate rather than lift and separate, if the rod tips were higher the pull on the rod would create a downward pull down on the tip trying to part the magnetic connection, much harder to do than to slide apart.

Just my thoughts hope you eventually get your rod and reel back.

I have been using the magnetic ND butt rests for the past 12 months without any issues.

I have had some pretty aggressive takes and they have never slipped or pulled off.

Seems like a common theme, I can't believe sonik charge £50 per reel. I honestly felt bad selling them on after a couple of days of use and knowing they were crap.

For the same money okuma put out a reel which is blinding, I won't be buying sonik reels again that's a cert.

ESP - the old version if you can get them. cheap as chips and grip the rod perfectly - as long as you buy the right size.

I agree with others on here I really donít like the ND butt rests at all, up there with the worst Iíve seen, my dad owns them but I really donít rate them at all

I Think there terrible to be honest. Upwards they grip forward pressure which is where you need the grip there rubbish. Havenít used them but a lad on the lake showed me his and wasnít impressed at all. But the clutch sounds like the issue in this case.

This happened a while back now and no dead fish reported thankfully. I've put it down to a mixture of the line going behind the spool of the poor quality xtractor reels, the Nd butt rests not being strong enough and my own stupidity not checking these things before hand.

I've now returned the Nd butt rests and sold the xtractor reels for okuma inceptions, far better bang for the buck.

I also emailed ND and pointed them to bad reviews but they didn't want to know and sonik never responded to me after I mentioned the poor quality of the xtractor reels. Oh well.

Just hope that if they pull the rod out it isn't still attached to the now dead biggest fish in the lake - wouldn't be the best first impression on the new club.

Haven't seen the butt rests in the flesh, looling at them online I can't really see what stops the rod sliding forward (how stronf is the magnet?).

It could have been a combination of the rod being pulled forward and the butt being pulled up that overcame the magnet - although if the clutch was loose then that should stop it happening. Is there any way you may have forgotten to loosen the clutch?

I did eventually put it down to the reels, xtractor reels, sold the set I had after the line went behind the spool too many times to count, still an issue with the Nd rests however as I'd have expected them to hold for at least a couple of seconds so I could grab the rod.

I never leave my rods in the water unoccupied.

bad angling..

I can not see your rod being pulled in if your clutch was loose enough.. or was you socialising in the peg next door away from your rods?

Hereís to hoping the people on my new club are honest folk if they drag it out at some point. I reckon it must have been the biggest fish in the lake, or so I keep telling myself
