A ‘mini’ big-pit reel with a slick, all-black design.

Shimano’s styling here is bound to please many modern anglers who want an up-to-date high-performance reel but maintain their understated ‘carpy’ look. The reel is beautifully smooth and extra slow oscillation gives impeccable line lay.

This, in combination with the slightly tapered spool, allows line to effortlessly flow off on the cast. Each reel is also supplied with a spare spool and a number of different size line reducers, which are ideal when using low-diameter lines and braids.

Price: £130
