Rockhopper 55GD

55 (5.5″) G (Graphite) D (One way drag, handle with spool)

$179.00

 

Description

The Rockhopper range of reels are especially designed for the rock angler, but are equally effective for any surf fishing. This model has an adjustable star drag to keep a steady safe strain on the line when playing a big fish. The handles are however fixed to the spool, they can be wound forward to apply extra pressure to a fish or can be released at any time without losing control of the fish. When washing a big fish up with a wave onto a rocky ledge, the direct wind handles hold the weight of the fish as the wave recedes. When winching a fish up a cliff, the direct wind handles overrides the drag and will not let the fish slip back into the water and possibly cut the line on the rocks. The metal side cast system on a strong graphite back will match up with 2.7 to 3.5m rods with lighter action. A well shaped injection moulded fibre glass spool gives great casts. The reel sits slightly further off the rod to allow better line flow and increase casting distance. The smooth clutch is a multi-plate design with polished brass plates combined with PTFE coated woven glass washer which can also withstand very high temperatures. A fish alert switch on the back side of the reel can be engaged when leaving the rod and reel unattended to warn you of a fish taking line. Left handed reels are available.
