The Big 6500BCVRRT combines some of Alvey's best-ever innovations. It features Turbocast, so you can rest assured you'll be out-casting your mates and be able to get your bait or lure to the schools of fish that are always "just out of range". With the added benefit of a rapid-retrieve handle, you get up to a 30% increase in line recovery speeds over the standard retrieve, by using the smaller inner handle, yet retain its 1:1 grunt with the larger outer handle. A new disc-adjusting nut powers an impressive drag. The silky smooth clutch is achieved by using heat-resistant PFTE woven glass washers in conjunction with polished brass plates. The body of the reel is ported to reduce weight, and makes giving it a wash in the surf to remove sand even easier. These reels are so tough and well built, sand and salt are no issue at all, and there's nothing that can go wrong with them. Perfect for either lures or bait, and chasing fish like salmon, tailor and big flathead or bream. Available in right hand retrieve only.
