EFTTEX Awards 2012 - Best New Fixed Spool Reel

Snowbee Raptor SW 1000 Reel

The smallest in the new series of Raptor Spinning Reels designed to complement the new Raptor rod series for game and sea fishing.

The SW 1000 reel is ideal for rock fishing in particular and has a capacity of 0.10mm/300m (4lbs/250yds). The body is constructed in hi-tech graphite with 8+1 stainless ball race bearings and anti-reverse bearing.


  • CNC machined aluminium high capacity spool and link arm handle.
  • Multi disc, ultra smooth combined carbon fibre and stainless front drag system, with minimal start up inertia.
  • Simple left to right hand conversion.
  • Internal ball trap and aluminium bail arm.
  • A brass pinion gear, with saltwater resistant internal components and extra hard paint exterior for durability and chip resistance.


Earlier models for 2012 have been the 3000, 4000 and 5000 reels, but the instant success and high demand for this series has driven the production and development of the two new models, the SW 1000 and SW 2000 for 2013.
