Italian tackle manufacturer Lineaeffe is looking to introduce fishing with braided line to a whole new audience with its latest innovative development.
The company is introducing a range of ready-spooled value-for-money reels containing its top quality braided line.
Andrea Borghi, of the company’s design department, told Angling International: “Lineaeffe is well known as a leading manufacturer of medium to value-for-money fishing tackle to wholesalers all around Europe, the Mediterranean, the Gulf and the Middle East. Best value is our motto ¬ and this new product launch will consolidate our leading position in the market.
“We were the first company 15 years ago to sell reels for combos spooled with monofilament – and now we are the first to offer braid. These reels are very cheap so that everyone can fish with braid and appreciate a style of fishing that in the past has been very expensive.”
The three new reels in the range – called the Value Pack Collection – have been designed for spinning (Braid Spin), boat/surfcasting (Braid Red Power) and trolling (Braid Troll).
Braid Red Power is spooled with 275yards of 50lb line and has been treated to protect it against corrosion from saltwater. It boasts a one-way clutch, oversized bail arm, big line roller and 5+1 ball bearings.
The Braid Spin comes with green braid and in four sizes weighing between 300gr to 440gr and line capacity from 197yards to 275yards on 30lb to 37lb line. They also have 7+1 ball bearings and gear ratio of 5.2:1.
Blue braided line adorns the Braid Troll which comes in two sizes – the 4.2:1 ratio 300 (30lb/220yards) and the 5.2:1 ratio 500 (60lb/328yards).
