This model reel incorporates a line guide that holds the line in place in the windy conditions experienced regularly whilst kayak fishing. The line slips into the guide through the small gap and is retained in the guide, to release for casting just slip line out through the gap.
This reel is constructed with a strong light weight graphite back and the Easy Cast System. The reel has an on/off switch on the back of the reel to engage the new silent anti-reverse action. The smooth clutch is a multi-plate design with polished brass plates combined with PTFE coated woven glass washer which can also withstand very high temperatures, and the multi-plate clutch controls any line being taken by a larger fish. The drag pawl in this reel is supported on a metal pin through the backplate making it ideal to handle larger fish when kayak fishing.
Alvey sidecast reels are not affected by continual saltwater exposure making them ideal for use in kayaks. Ideal for freshwater and light saltwater fishing, strong drag will take on all varieties.
