Tica Flash Surf Long Cast Reel
comfortable price point. This reel weighs in at a light 535gm, making it ideal for building an ultra-light surf combo.
Carbon is used for the frame, rotor, and handle, to keep the weight down but also to keep the frame rigid and strong.
There is a small lubrication port on the main body, giving easy access to lube the main gear.
The 5.2:1 gear train runs fast and smooth on 7 RRB ball bearings, giving a line retrieval rate of 114cm per handle turn.
Fitted with a long shaft and long cast spool and a slow oscillation lets line wind perfectly back onto the spoolwith no line overlap, resulting in perfect long casts. The spool line guard system is now almost silent.
The spool also features a stainless line keeper button which can be used as a casting memory device, simply loop your line around the protruding button after your perfect cast. Now wind the line back in and cast again, the line will stop going out when it reaches the loop you put in the button - and your cast will stop at exactly the same distance/length as your initial cast.
There is an extra drag knob with this reel. The quick-set drag features an integrated preset control which effectively gives you a similar concept to a baitfeeder reel, and is perfect for straylining.
Crank the main drag up, then set your desired maximum drag with the small preset knob. Then back the main drag off to put your reel into Baitfeeder mode - simple!
