Our 50 reel has been a favourite for small boat and estuary fishing for many, many years. A traditional stainless steel back and metal side cast system provides quality and a long life. A light and strong injection moulded fibre glass spool with a stainless steel bush means smooth running and increased sensitivity.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. Good line capacity and a fish alert switch on the back side of the reel which can be engaged when leaving the rod and reel unattended to warn you of a fish taking line make this a very popular reel.Left handed reels are available.
