Fish with the reel thing

RE­SPECTED reel man­u­fac­turer Fin-Nor has in­tro­duced an new range of salt­wa­ter spin­ning reels.

The en­try-level Bis­cayne reels are built for those who want FinNor’s le­gendary dura­bil­ity and re­li­able per- for­mance but don’t want to spend a for­tune to ac­quire all it has to of­fer.

The new reels have strong alu­minium bod­ies and side plates, with multi-layer cor­ro­sion pro­tec­tion.

The ro­tors are com­puter-bal­anced and the forged-alu­minium spools can be used with braid or monofil­a­ment lines.

The Bis­cayne reels have a four ball-bear­ing sys­tem, while a con­tin­u­ous anti-re­verse clutch delivers rock-solid hook­sets and the car­bon-fi­bre drag sys­tem al­lows smooth op­er­a­tion.

All mod­els have a pow­er­ful 4.9:1 gear ra­tio for fast re­triev­ing.

There are four sizes avail­able, start­ing from FS50, which holds 205m of 6kg line, per­fect for boat, jetty or es­tu­ary.
