Watch out manufacturers of dual drag reels, Maxel has arrived! Ever heard of Jigging Master reels? Maxel is the company that makes them and they have now released their own line of dual drag jigging reels in the United States for half the price! The Maxel Ocean Max OSL06 Lever Dual Drag Single-Speed Jigging Reel is just the beginning!

The Maxel Ocean Max OSL06 Lever Dual Drag Single-Speed Jigging Reel is the second smallest in the Ocean Max series. It is roughly the same size as an Avet SX but the left sideplate is a bit thicker to account for the second drag plate. This adds a little bit of weight but at 19.1 ozs, this is still incredibly light. The OSL06′s dual carbon drag system puts out an awesome 33 lbs of drag at max! With so much power, the reel required heat treated stainless steel gears to handle the pressure and torque. Eight oversized shielded ball bearings make this reel extremely smooth, and it has a great offset aluminum bar handle. The Maxel Ocean Max OSL06 comes with a 5-year limited warranty.

The Maxel Ocean Max OSL06 is going to be hard to compete with. Other dual drag reels cost almost twice as much. As I mentioned before, it is basically the same reel as the Jigging Master. Why pay twice as much for the same reel? Put it up against an Accurate and it is just as good at a significant discount! Trust me when I say that these reels are built extremely well, and you would have a lot of fun fishing with one.

The Maxel Ocean Max OSL06 Lever Dual Drag Single-Speed Jigging Reels sell for $339.99. They are available in three colors, and come with a reel cover, clamp set, tools and paperwork. Visit our web site for over 20 pics of these new reels from Maxel!
