A light but strong graphite back and a bakelite spool keeps weight to a minimum. A large easy to use Tri Star knob controls tension or locks the reel up after fishing and the spool runs smoothly on a brass bush. The 455BXL also has the added feature of the Easy Cast System to cast a float out to the blackfish.
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.
Can be used right or left handed.
