Skeet's New Reel - Sneak Peak

I just saw this on Wired2Fish.com.  Skeet Reese and Wright and McGill have teamed up to create a new reel with his name on it.  I knew he was switching sponsors from Abu to an unknown brand and now we know who.  The reel was created in his signature black and yellow colors and will look great on his signature rods (which are now coming out with Micro Guides), if your into the colors.  They are coming out with a 6.2:1 and 7.0:1 reel in both right and left handed retrieve to fit all applications.  The reel has all of the features bass anglers want and will be priced at $119.99, a big change from his $280 Revo.  Here are some more of the features of the new reel:

  • Aluminum frame for durability and weight reduction.
  • 10 stainless steel ball bearings – 9 + 1 design.
  • Unlimited anti-reverse.
  • One touch removable aluminum spool.
  • Quick access side plate.
  • Centrifugal anti-backlash braking system.
  • Powerful and smooth Teflon® drag system.
  • Audible click star drag.
  • Precision cut brass gears.
  • Extra large power handle and oversized rubber paddles.
  • Gear ratio 6.2:1 - high speed or 7.0:1 – ultra high speed.
  • Line capacity 120 yds. of 12 lb.
  • Available in right & left hand retrieve.
  • Weight 7.76 ounces.
  • Includes neoprene reel case.
  • One year warranty.
