Product Description


J W Young Super Lightweight Centrepin Reel

Modelled on the incredibly successful Bob James Centrepin, this Super Lightweight Centrepin is a feather-light alternative for the angler who likes to do a lot of rod work when coarse fishing on rivers. This ultra-light version of the classic centrepin has been achieved thanks to some truly innovative machining on the rims and back plate of the reel. Fitted with narrower bars on the arbour, as well as revising the positioning and the size of the cut-outs on the back plate and rims, has not only made this reel exponentially lighter than any other manufactured by J W Youngs but it has also made this reel incredibly aesthetically pleasing.

Another side effect of the reduced weight of the reel is that it now runs more smoothly and freely than ever before. This is essential for all your river work as it allows you seamless action between reel, rod, and fish. Like many of the most high quality J W Youngs centrepins, the Super Lightweight is fitted with a click check spool feature – providing you with additional audible awareness. The micro disc drag is hardwearing for the most regular and repetitive users, too.

J W Youngs has been designing and manufacturing reels for the better part of a century and, excluding the war years when the factory was transformed to produce essential items for the war effort – including the firing button for the iconic Spitfire plane, there has never been a period in the company’s history where it hasn’t been producing award winning centrepin reels. Jim Young, grandson of J W who started the business, still has a close involvement with the company. Indeed, no product gets released unless Jim has personally checked it to ensure it lives up to the high standard the Youngs name demands. All versions of this reel are numbered and it comes with a certificate of authenticity, too.
