Big Pit/Carp reels

On larger waters, where casting distance is essential, using the correct reel is as important as using the correct rod. SHIMANO Big Pit/ Surfcasting reels, with Slow Oscillation, Super Slow Oscillation and the new Parallel Body design add noticeable casting distance compared to other reels of the same   size.

Slow line oscillation wraps the line onto the spool in a more organized way, with the coils of line laying closer to the next one on the spool. On Parallel Body design reels the body of the reel is parallel to the blank of the rod, rather than the reel tilting slightly towards the rod. The combination of Slow or Super Slow Oscillation and Parallel Body offers the ultimate in distance casting performance.

Aerlex XTB

The New Aerlex series with their new cosmetic design have been designed for the heavy duty work. Whether its carp or surf fishing, with Aero Wrapp II, 2 speed Oscillation and AR-C spool they can produce excellent casting capabilities. The Spod version with a 5,3:1 ratio and a massive 115 cm retrieve can really make light work of all spodding activities.
