Accurate Fishing Products has added two new reels to its popular Bass Valiant Series. Both the BV-400 Single Speed and BV2-400 Two Speed are designed to offer saltwater anglers the best in smoothness and power and to increase casting distances.
Both models also incorporate technology for strength, torque and durability without increasing reel size and weight.
The rugged aluminium frames are uniquely curved to deliver structural integrity of reels twice their size, says Accurate, with the capacity to hold 325 yards of 50lb test braid.
Factor in the 26 lb of working drag and the BV-400 and BV2- 400 are ideal for tackling tuna, yellowtail, dorado, grouper and other large predators.
Accurate has made the walls of the reels thinner than competitor models, but explains that the non-flexing frames and sideplates enable them to withstand more stress.
Inside this tough housing are stainless steel gears, with seven Class-5 ABEC bearings and two ARB bearings sealed for corrosion resistance to ensure smooth and reliable operation.
With a 6:1 gear ratio, the BV-400 provides both rapid retrieve speed and plenty of cranking power, taking in 38 inches of line with a single turn of the handle. The BV2’s two-speed function means you can change from a 6:1 retrieve to a winch-like gear ratio at the touch of a button.
Both models are fitted with Accurate’s comfortable ‘power handle’ and with the manufacturer’s new easy-find Cam Stop feature, a fail-safe that prevents the angler from going too far into full drag when playing a fish.
Instead of having stops at free-spool and strike, the BV and BV2 have a secure indent in the drag cam that stops the drag level from going into full.
