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.
