Fox 12000 FS Reel

Constructed under the precision guidance of Ian ‘Chilly’ Chillcott and used in his 2011 World Carp Championship victory to help him remove no less than 122 of the hardest fighting carp from the St. Lawrence river, the Fox 12000 FS is surely one of the most impressive freespool reels that the company has ever created. In a sleek matt black this reel is modern, attractive, and looks every bit as good as it feels.

A pure-blooded workhorse, the 12000 FS is has a graphite body. Graphite is one of the most popular reel materials on the market today and is favoured by tackle manufacturers up and down the country for its hard-wearing and feather-light properties. The rear freespool feature is ideal for the avid carp angler as it temporarily disables the clutch, allowing the carp to run with your hookbait until the moment you pick up the handle. In real terms, this means you are less likely to suffer hook pulls and lost fish with this freespool system than you are with any fixed spool system. This fact has made freespool reels by far the most popular of all the reel types among the carp fishing community and, as this reel was designed with serious carp fishing in mind, there was no way the Fox team would have created it without this freespool feature.

The reel also features a Mesh-Tech gearing system to enable perfect gear mesh time after time. This ensures that you are able to utilise every bit of power that you exert through the handle, as no energy is lost due to friction between mismatched gearing. This reel is fitted with an outstanding 16 ball bearings. This ensures that this reel is incredibly smooth to operate and will rotate like a dream. Maximum power requires minimum effort, making playing huge and hard fighting beasts a pleasure.
