    Anyone have any trouble with the arms squeaking when trying to adjust them? Would love to know how to solve this issue as it scares the fish away. Appreciate any tips.

    squeaky from new or became squeaky over time? If they became squeaky you could try new o-rings. I know my Nauticam/INON arms don't squeak, they may be different type of o-ring??

    Locline or ball/joint style arms?

    Locline just seems to always creak.

    I wonder if a little silicon spray on each segment might help - untill it washes off.
