Best New Fixed Spool Reel
What next in fixed spool reels? For more distance with less effort see the Castalia Magic Flight, launched into Europe at EFTTEX 2011. It features a new patented dimpled-face spool design that allows line to release from the spool more freely during casting.The Dragon Fishmaker is a similar leap forward in spinning reel design, offering 30% longer casts.
If lightness matters, take a closer look at the new Mitchell Advanced Series Mag Pro Extreme which uses a lighter weight carbon/aluminum hybrid spool, titanium mainshaft and ultra-lightweight magnesium body, rotor and sideplate yet refuses to compromise on durability and strength. Meanwhile the Quantum PT Smoke Spinning Reel is made using the philosophy ‘metal where it matters’ to keep its weight down.
And who can fail to be excited by the launch of the new Shimano Aero Technium 10000 XSB Mgs and the latest reel from Wychwood Specimen, the Solace 10 ACS? It promises to be an exciting year ahead.
