Chances are you've never heard of Bates Fishing Co, but you will! The Bates Salty 150 Baitcasting Reel is extremely impressive for the type of shallow water jigging we do in the Northeast. It features a CNC machined aluminum body which is unheard of in a baitcasting reel! Makes the reel very rigid and sturdy. Inside the main gear and pinion gears are brass while the shaft is stainless steel making this reel incredibly powerful and durable for its size. It can handle higher jig weights than other reels in its size class which makes it very special. It's perfect for fluke fishing but also jigging for sea bass and blackfish. Bates Fishing Co put eleven ball bearings inside for smoothness and a long titanium handle with double cork paddle knobs. The carbon drag system puts out 20 lbs of fish stopping power, which is more than enough drag for the type of fishing you will be doing with this reel. You get all of this and the reel weighs just 8 ozs. That's 25% less weight that a comparable conventional round reel. If you love jigging and want to fish a lighter set up that has all the benefits of a heavier reel, buy a Bates Salty 150 Baitcasting Reel. Pair it with your favorite fishing rod and you are good to go!
Bates Salty 150 Baitcasting Reels are available in right handed. They come in Nautical Blue, which is a great color!
