  2. Hotfix 25/04 For a number of conventional reels, the spool capacity has been increased. The algorithm for deprecation of gear components has been reworked, which in some cases should have a positive effect on the wear resistance. This change primarily concerns the wear resistance of reels and lines. Updated the paper map for the Norwegian Sea. Fixed: It was possible to install a number of components on some rigs without having acquired the necessary skills for this. Fixed: It was possible to remove the hook from the “Gummi Makk” lures, which made it impossible to use these lures in the future. Fixed: When fishing with marine rods, it was impossible to use the “accurate casting” skill.
