If, like me, you like to have enough tackle to suit every fishing scenario that you come across so that you don’t have to keep changing your setup, you should really considering adding some of these reels to your angling armoury.
This reel is suitable for a whole host of angling applications, whether stalking for Carp, float fishing for Tench and Bream or ledgering on the river for Chub and Barbel, this reel has is suitable for the lot!
It’s very compact and has all the features that you need from a small carp/specimen reel, including a super smooth free-spool system, it also has a front clutch, which I prefer because they always seem to be smoother than a rear version.
It is mostly finished in matt black and is a very well-constructed reel that I have found excellent for all the angling challenges it’s faced so far.
