    Reel Colour


    This little reel makes an ideal light boat or estuary reel for adults and will still handle the harsh treatment of young anglers in a sandy and saltwater environment.   The 40GDZ is for adults or the more advanced junior angler that wants to let their fish take some line under clutch pressure (anti-reverse switch on).

    A fish alert also sounds to tell your line is being taken.   You can also select no anti-reverse and no noise if required. Reels work for right handed or left handed use. With Alvey’s revolutionary Easy Cast System, teaching the children to cast could not be easier.

    Now that they are casting like champions you will spend less time helping and more time fishing.

    The Easy Cast System will also operate in right or left hand position.

    Fantastic for school students

    We are an Environmental Education Centre and we purchased Alvey reels for use on our fishing excursions with school students. Unlike any other reel we have tried, Alvey reels are indestructible! They can withstand saltwater and sand, unlike the others and I highly recommend them. The customer service we received was also outstanding.

    Alvey Adventurer 40GDZ sidecast fishing reel.

    As an owner of 2 of these reels, land based, mostly freshwater, with 10lb.& 20lb. braid, with 9ft.& 10ft. rods, I find them extremely good. At 92 years and vision impaired these reels are perfect for me. Thanks ALVEY.

    So good I bought a second one.

    The little 40 GDZ gets the job done. For light light bay and estuary fishing it is perfect i especially like the direct contact you have with your bait or solf plastic. The ultra smooth drag easily handles pinkies whiting and flathead even trout when used in the fresh. So good I bought a second one and it glows in the dark.
