New from American fishing tackle manufacturer, Piscifun, is the Torrent Baitcaster reel.
The company says that it lives up to its name, being both strong and fast, with a 7.1.1 gear ratio and 4.33″ cranking handle providing the power and leverage to hoist big fish out of thick cover.
“When you set the fishing hook on a big fish you want to be confident that your reel has what it takes to do the job,” says the company. “The three-disc high grade carbon fibre drag system is rated at 18lb and pairs perfectly with the CNC-machined high quality brass gear system.
“With the Torrent Baitcaster you can be confident in both fresh and saltwater. The design boasts corrosion resistant premium gears and a 5+1 shield stainless steel ball bearing system to ensure smooth operation at all times.
“As a tournament angler your time is valuable and you need to be as efficient as you can while on the water. The Torrent Baitcaster offers a quick adjustment 0-10 magnetic braking system for on the fly adjustment when money is on the line. Another cool feature that will save you loads of time is the convenient maintenance system. Simply remove the screw from the side play and oil your reel. This saves times and helps avoid lost or broken parts in the process.”
Tournament angler, Jason Brenic, said: “I have been really impressed with the Piscifun Torrent. It is extremely comfortable in the palm of your hand and I am a huge fan of the large cranking handle. There is no doubt it provides better leverage when hoisting in big fish.
“I see it being a great reel in my arsenal for flipping and frogging.”
