A fixed-spool reel that is totally saltwater proof and will not corrode? Surely not! Well, here it is, a spinning reel that has been purpose-built for light beachcasting too.
It is packed with features such as an oversized bale-arm, a balanced rotor and a drilled aluminium spool that reduces the reel’s weight.
The guts of this reel contains four high performance, corrosion-resistant bearings, and the gears offer a swift 5.1:1 retrieve ratio.
For a small fixed-spool reel, the spool easily accommodates 200m of 0.35mm line.
Value for money: A reel that will not corrode for less than 40 quid, and a spare spool – definitely.
Practicality: It’s lightweight, smooth handling and swallows a heap of mainline.
Would we buy it? Of course we would. It’s saltwater and corrosion-resistant and doesn’t cost a lot.
