This reel was sent in to us by our friends in Australia. It is also very popular in New Zealand and used accross Europe. We kept hearing about the long distance casts they were getting. After some hard work we are now able to offer these reels to our customers in the United States. The reel features a large spool the is shallow in depth. This allows line to peel off easy during a cast. Natuarlly, this reel is great for any surf fishermen who need a long cast to get their bait or lure out past the breakers. We haven't found another reel with these specs and especially at this pricepoint. We match this reel with a 10' rod or larger.
