DAIWA NINJA FD, £49.99
Incredibly smart and striking, this is a reel which looks and performs like something twice its price. Super smooth and benefits from a host of Daiwa features such as Twistbuster, Infinite Anti-reverse, a graphite body and an Air Rotor.
SHIMANO BAITRUNNER ST FB, £49.99
With the world-famous Baitrunner lever feature, which puts the reel into freespool, paying out line after a bite until you are ready to pick up the rod. The XT-7 spool has Varispeed for better line lay and casting accuracy and Power Roller gears to reduce line twist on the retrieve.
BROWNING COMMERCIAL KING CK, £49.99
Small sizes and shallow spools, perfect for short to medium casts on modern stillwater fisheries. One-touch folding handle, sensitive 'click-stop' vernier front drag, safe nylon line clip in a lined recess. In a striking white.
OKUMA CEYMAR C FIXED SPOOL, £30 - £44.99
A really solid reel featuring a corrosion-resistant graphite body, Precision Elliptical Gearing system and heavy-duty, solid aluminum bail wire. With a narrow Blade Body design and a skeletal spool to reduce overall weight.
MITCHELL 300 PRO FD, £50
Mitchell has taken its hugely popular 300 series and elevated it to new heights. A carbon hybrid drag, open rotor, machined aluminium spool and a staggering 10 bearings give this high performance features. The front drag and handle closely resemble the original.
