The FishWinch Spinning reel uses custom components to deliver a high-quality, uncumbersome design that is light-weight, efficient and tough. It is designed to handle anything in freshwater as well as some of your favorite inshore fish species like Speckled Trout, Redfish, Flounder, and Snook.
The reels are Shimano Syncopate 4000 which gives you more versatility in going from freshwater to inshore saltwater environment. When you purchase a reel, everything is all set up on arrival. All you have to do is add your line of choice be it mono, braid or fluorocarbon.
A better way to understand the different speeds is to think in terms of turns of the handle. The 65 complete one handle turn per second. The 80 completes 1.25 turns per second and the 95 turns the handle at 1.5 turns per second.
What type of battery does this use? 9 volt Lithium battery is recommended. Lithium batteries run with the same power throughout the life of the battery and then dies suddenly. Standard 9 volts will work but you will see a gradual decline in performance and power. Rechargeable also is not recommended as they rarely last as long as they are supposed to.
Line capacity is standard Mono 8/240, 10/200 and 12/160. Of course, braided line is also welcomed on this reel. At $299.00, this is an excellent Christmas present selection!
