RIGHT HAND WIND MODEL! FOR PEOPLE WHO HOLD THE ROD IN THEIR LEFT HAND! Since the introduction of our last reel we very quickly came to the conclusion that other people thought as we did in that there was very little in the way of big reels available on the market to suit pike fly fishing. There were several problems with the reels that were available, size, price, quality, style, capacity and weight to name just a few. Most of them were aimed at salmon fishermen where weight or indeed price was not an issue. Then there were the plastic ones.........mmmmmm! Our reel was so well received by all that we just had to have some more manufactured, but before that could happen there was an issue that needed addressing. I just happen to use 12 weight lines on my Pikesabers so a little more spool capacity was needed to enable me to fit a bit more backing on. So I got our friendly reel-maker to increase the width of the drum without altering the looks or design of the spool in order to accomodate the biggest lines that we use. The result is this, our pride and joy and everything you could ever need from a pike fly reel. This is the lightest reel available ANYWHERE that is capable of taking an eleven-twelve weight line and backing. We have designed it to be extremely light in weight without sacrificing strength in the main frame, and still be of a sufficient size to hold those big lines that have now become standard-issue for pike fly fishing. Finished in Satin Black, this reel simply oozes quality and the looks are stunning, stick one on your Pikesaber and see! AWESOME! It is lighter in weight than any other reel in it's class, and will even hold a full long-belly weight-forward eleven or twelve weight floating line with backing. One of my own reels holds a fourteen-weight saltwater line with backing and is as light as a feather, so I suffer less arm-ache at the end of the day! Constructed from the very finest Aircraft-grade Aluminium Alloy for superb strength and ultra-light weight, and made by a World-Class manufacturer to our own specifications specifically for fly fishing for pike. Extra-large arbor spool design that incorporates a super-smooth drag system with a four-Kilo tension to slow down even the largest pike and help stop your fingers getting burnt!. Rakish styling with Laser-cut logo and line rating, neatly cut into the black anodized finish. Comes complete with a drawstring velour "Tote Bag" that fits around the reel and rod so that your reel and line will be fully protected whilst on the move or during transit. Spare spools available soon! Please note that this reel has been designed as an every day bank fishing reel, it's intended purpose is to be as light in weight as possible and be a joy to use all day. It is not therefore suitable for use as a heavy-duty boat-fishing reel, nor is it meant for use in saltwater. Some may think that the line capacity is not large enough for a reel of this size, as you cannot fit miles of backing on it. That's because we don't use lots of backing as we have never had ANY pike take a line down into the backing. The spool has an extremely large arbor which keeps weight down to a minimum and helps to maintain tangle-free fly lines by reducing "coiling". Approximate dimensions are.... Diameter 105mm, arbour diameter 70mm, spool width 42mm. Capacity = full 115ft. Saltwater 12 weight fly line and 50 yards of backing.
