It is well worth making sure that your fishing reel is up to the job. It can make a big difference because if it is not smooth then you will not be able to wind up the line so quickly which could give the fish a chance to get away. It might also mean that you will risk breaking the line. This reel is designed for carp fishing and it comes with a spare spool. It has 8 + 1 ball bearings and a ratio of 5:1:1. It has a weight of 480g. It has an aluminium handle and spool which means that it is durable and should last a long time. The handle can be adjusted to work for the left or right hand. It comes in a choice of sizes.
