55B REEL

  • Sale
  • Regular price $120.15


A slightly smaller reel than the 600 and 625 to match shorter estuary rods. The metal side cast system and strong graphite back plate ensure the strength to handle a good fish. The fibre glass spool runs on a small diameter stainless steel bush to give an extra free running action.

To control a fish taking line on a direct wind reel the hand is taken off the winding handle and quickly applied to the line surface and spool to create back pressure. When the fish has slowed put your hand back to the handle and recover the line and the fish. Simply nothing to go wrong or break on this reel.

A fish alert switch is also a feature on this great lightweight reel.

The  fish alert switch  on the back side of the reel can be engaged when leaving the rod and reel unattended to warn you of a fish taking line.

This reel sits off the rod slightly more than a normal reel allowing better line flow and increased  casting distance.

Ideal for whiting, trevally, flathead, bream .

Left handed reels are available.
