Will FF-CAL fit on my conventional fishing rod? Yes & No. some rod blanks are too thick. We suggest you get a C-CAL.

What lures does C-CAL retrieve? If it has a hook or treble hook then C-CAL will get it. Bass lures, rapalas, poppers, spinners, crank baits, wormys, musky flys, you name it C-CAL can get it if it has a steel hook on it.

Will C-CAL work on flys? Yes, but the small flys size 16, 18, 20 may miss being caught via the repositioned magnets. Get a FF-CAL for fly fishing flys is recommended.

Will C-CAL fit on my flyrod? Yes, but it is heavier than FF-CAL which may flex entire rod and not be as easy to control.

Can the Telescope of either FF-CAL or C-CAL be disconnected and then use the actual product on my rod? Yes it is two products in one. It can easily be disconnected & reconnected by removing a set-screw.

Can I use any CAL to cut a tree branch? No. Tree branches are heavier to move than any fish. Cutting the line is the key to the efficiency of FF-CAL or C-CAL & most of the time your line will fall out from the tree branch, after its cut from the lure or fly.

What does a FF-CAL Weigh? 9 oz.

What does a C-CAL Weigh?
12 oz.
