Based in Essex, Nash is a fishing tackle provider started by Kevin Nash, who remains CEO of Nash Tackle. The company has decades of experience, developing the terminal tackle, rod supports, and bait we take for granted today. The Nash brand has become synonymous with high-quality carp fishing products as no other company has produced industry defining carp tackle the way that Nash Tackle has. Innovation has been a hallmark of the company’s success, from the first carp safe slings to holdalls with the ability to carry made-up rods and reels, it has led the way in the industry. In 2012, the revolutionary range of the Nash Scope collection was brought to the market and carp anglers lapped it up in no time.
Nash remains the largest carp specialist brand on the modern market, continuing its excellence with the introduction of the Nash Scope GT Reel. Scope GT reels offer exceptional performance in a compact body to balance perfectly with all Scope sawn-off rods. These are ideal for use in intimate venues when you need the performance that a big fish fighting reel can offer but in a miniature compact form.
This reel comes in two size options of 4000 and the 6000. Both are ideal for the use on medium sized carp fishing venues, as well as the smaller waters the UK has to offer. The slightly smaller size of the reel that is available, the GT 4000, also means that you are able to use this reel across a variety of fishing styles across the discipline, including floater, feeder, dropshotting, light lure, and commercial work. Both sizes are incredibly versatile reels – in many ways the ideal carp reel.
Allowing you to punch your lead to the horizon, Nash’s sealed carbon fast drag feature ensures that you have full control over your line when you’re hitting those incredible distances. Fast acting drag is vital for distance casting in this way, as it ensures that you’re able to maintain control over the business end of your rig.
The Nash Scope Fast Drag reel has an aluminium long cast spool, allowing you to punch out as far as you require, which has been fitted with dual Spot On line clips. These clips allow you to target two different features interchangeably, with incredible accuracy and precision casting each time. The balanced rotor feature prevents an imbalance that usually causes the reel to wobble while cranking, the extra material cast into the rotors helps with balancing the rotor too.
This rear drag fishing reel consists of stainless steel ball bearings, that operate nine ball bearings plus a one-way clutch. The reel also benefits from large spool and a clinical line lay, thanks to the line guard spool system. The level wind line lay to ensure a long, smooth casting from the CAD aluminium spool. To prevent you from tangles, the reel also features an anti-reverse switch which is located in the spool.
For ease of storage and for quick set up, the reel features a one-touch folding handle. This smoothly folds out without difficulty. The handle is also interchangeable from the black EVA to the wooden handle option. Perfect for those that prefer a more authentic and natural feel. Nash also packs the reel with a guide and tools to change the handle as well as a velvet pouch to protect the reel whilst in storage.
So for a high quality, compact but amazing performance reel from Nash, consider the Scope GT.
