Our classic stainless steel back has the metal side cast system on the 475A5E reel. This model runs extremely freely on dual stainless steel ball bearings. A fish alert supplies a small amount of back pressure if required to slow the ultra free running spool. Spool is easily removed with the spindle nut on the front of the reel. The pressure from a slow current movement on a float should be enough to take line off a float fishing reel and our ball bearing reels allow this to happen. A broad rounded lip on the spool of the 475 reels allows fingertip control to release or recover line and move your float. The handles are usually only used when fighting and landing your fish.
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 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 or prevent overruns when rigging up or stripping line.
Ideal for blackfish or any float fishing.
Left hand version available.
