MAP caused huge interest when it launched its innovative ACS line clip system a few years back. Now the match brand, part of the Leeda company in the UK, has added to the popular ACS series with two new reels aimed predominantly at feeder and float fishermen.
The ACS system provides the casting accuracy advantages that come with a conventional line clip, but immediately disengages when a hooked fish runs, eliminating the risk of breakages.
The system is one of a number of value-for-money features incorporated in the mid-priced MAP P3000FD and P4000FD models. They also come with oversized alloy spools (two with each reel) to cater for heavier lines, retrieve ratios of 5:1 for the 3000 and 6:1 for the 4000 and hollow bale arms with large, brass anti-twist rollers to assist casting.
Both models have nine ball bearings to ensure smooth performance and come with single and double EVA handle knobs. Line capacity is 200m of 0.20 on the P3000 and 250m of 0.20 on the P4000.
All this is packaged in a more compact housing than the orginal ACS models and finished in handsome black livery that gives the reels a classy, expensive appearance that belies their price.
The new reels have drawn good reviews from product editors on various consumer magazines, who have been impressed with their smooth running and affordability.
