Big Pit Reels

£139.99
SAH Branded Extended Warranty, ESP, 1, 590g, Shallow 300m of 0.33mm, 4.8:1

Click for details.

Featuring a sleek, understated black livery and diminutive in size (similar to a 5000 Emblem) when compared with the original, it comes with two bespoke anodized aluminium spools, Shallow - designed to accommodate 300m of 15lb (0.37mm) and Ultra Shallow - for 300m of 12lb (0.33mm). This means that three reels can be filled from a 1000m bulk spool with minimal waste.

The solid foundation provided by the shallow spools where no 'spongey' backing is required and slow oscillation result in exceptionally good line lay with no bedding in, ensuring optimum casting distances can be achieved. A gear ratio of 4.8:1 provides a fast retrieve of 0.95m of line with every turn of the handle.

The Compact is supplied with two different drag adjusters - FD (Fine Drag for micro adjustment) and RL (Rapid Lockdown for free running to locked down in around half a turn).

Another desirable feature is the quick fold handle with a dark wood paddle, for rapid deployment and pack down and also allows the handle to be folded in use for super snug rod setups.

SAH Branded Extended Warranty, Daiwa, 0, 615g, 150 meters of 0.28mm, 4.7:1

The 45mm profile is recognised as the ultimate spool size for big distance casting. This generation of Emblem utilises a reduced oscillation speed called Slow Cross Wrap, enhancing the line lay. The result is lower consumption of casting energy during line release, when combined with the friction reducing double lip profile of the LC spool increases casting distance by more than 5%.
Supplied with a shallow C and spare deep LD spool; (300m - 0.35mm and 530m - 0.35mm). The C spool allows filling of three spools from 1000m.
Retrieval is geared down at 4.9:1 but still cranks up to 104cm per handle turn.
