Accurate Fishing, known for its patented TwinDrag® reels, has introduced a new 300-size single-speed model for inshore and light offshore action.
The BV-300 Valiant is the first of the Californian company’s ‘new technology’ offerings and is said to boast an innovative design that minimises size and weight, while maximising strength, durability and fish-fighting power. Built with shallow-water jigging in mind, the BV-300 is also at home livebait coastal fishing, snapper sport around reefs, jigging for silver salmon or targeting school-sized tuna, yellowtail and dorado.
Accurate Fishing says that the unique curvature of the BV-300’s rugged 6061 T6 aluminium gives this lightweight and compact reel the structural integrity of models twice its size. “Basing the design on the original premise of the Roman arches or domes used in early architecture, we have been able to create a significantly stronger reel using less material,” adds Accurate.
“While the walls are thinner, its non-flexing frame and sideplate enables it to withstand more stress than similar-sized reels. It weighs just 9.9oz, yet it is capable of taking on surprisingly large saltwater adversaries.”
Accurate has managed to fit the drive train of a bigger reel perfectly into the BV-300’s small profile. It also features what it claims is a deeper, wider spool than any other reel in its class, ultra-strong, high precision stainless steel gears, nine ABEC 5 class ball bearings, a 6:1 gear ratio and a comfortable power handle.
“Put simply,” says Accurate, “the BV-300 offers performance that is as close as you can get to a two-speed in a single-speed reel.”
The BV-300 also incorporates a new Accurate feature – an easy-find ‘Cam Stop’ at strike. Instead of having buttons at free spool and strike, it has a secure indent in the drag cam that stops the drag lever going into full. This offers a fail-safe during the heat of battle preventing the angler from going too far into full drag.
