If you ever wanted a reel with guts, this is it. Lots of carp anglers swear by this reel for their spodding purposes, continually chucking up to 7oz of bait to the feeding zone, so you can rest assured it has pedigree.
With an ultra-smooth front drag, massive cranking handle and cold forged gears, this reel should cope with all heavy-duty work.
By spending a few extra pounds above the £50 budget, you get a reel that can take a battering and will not let you down.
Although it may exceed your budget, this reel is perfect for shore work and it won’t let you down when you pile on the power.
