If you're catching big fish from the beach, or the boat, and need a reel that's strong enough to handle anything you can throw at it, then the Alvey 650C5 is the ideal choice.
This reel has a great line capacity and excellent casting distance, so it's great for reaching fish behind sand bars. There's a fish alert system which will tell you of bites if you leave the rod unattended, star nuts to apply extra tension to the spool, and stainles- bush for smooth running.
The 650C5 is excellent when you're fishing for salmon, tailor or mackerel from the land or offshore, and importantly, there's nothing to go wrong, or break in rough weather or big fights.
With the Alvey 650C5, you'll keep your reel in one piece, and the fish on the end of your line.
