Leeda’s lat­est bad boys are a must for big carp

Angling Times (UK) - - TACKLE NEWS -

LEEDA’S new Rogue brand has two ad­di­tions in the shape of these su­per value big pit and freespool 6500 and 7500-sized reels.

Both all-black mod­els look to be the per­fect tools for the bud­ding an­gler tar­get­ing big carp, and are packed with fea­tures in­clud­ing su­per­strong graphite com­pound bod­ies that are not only very durable, but give the reels a pleas­antly light­weight feel.

The ded­i­cated freespool (Fs) model makes in­stant con­tact with a fish the mo­ment you get a run, and is ideal for any­one look­ing for dis­tance­cast­ing prow­ess com­bined with the con­ve­nience of freespool bite con­trol.

The big pit (Fd) reel is com­pact, with a wide spool suited to tac­tics in­clud­ing Method feeder and sur­face work, not just long-range cast­ing.

A de­cent front drag is eas­ily ad­justed to your re­quire­ments when al­low­ing line to be taken un­der pres­sure, or when play­ing fish.

The slightly elon­gated die-cast power han­dle gen­er­ates a huge amount of crank­ing power, which should make short work of the heav­i­est fish, and the large, hand­ily-placed anti-re­verse switch at the back of the reel’s body is easy to op­er­ate.

Other key fea­tures on both reels in­clude 5 + 1 stain­less ball-bear­ings for a su­per smooth re­trieve, and su­per-slow os­cil­la­tion gear­ing that pro­duces a per­fectly flat line lay that adds dis­tance to the cast.

Price: £39.99 (both mod­els)
