Gata gata

Wondering how gata gatas work I know they work during the strike as the line peels out but what causes that? Does something vibrate the walls? Like a clunker?

When you get gata-gata strikes..everyone wakes up...my friend thought is sounded like a lady screaming while falling off a cliff...on one ours strike using the gata-gata..lol..a true screamer too... Most have a screw to adjust pull pressure...

Need to still use bells..cause most times the puhi's..will not set the gata-gata off...so kinda have to use bells when' using it...

We use a clamp with the thumb handles...Old style reel seat clamps.... it takes time to remove the gata-gate off the rods and add weight to rods...when fighting a fish...( you will want it remove after the strikes..) best to put it close to the reel ...where it should be anyways...

Mean nosie...for sure.. Just bells are easier to use... best to keep it simple... Off course we always set a pole far away....a good time to use them...gata-gata...just the runs are far...puffing and puffing to reach the rods..and hope still get line left..lol

Aloha, we believe there only two types made...we like the originals...ones more..
