This reel is constructed with a strong light weight graphite back and the Easy Cast System.
The 45BC has an on/off switch on the back of the reel to engage the anti-reverse action. A smooth multi- plate clutch controls any line being taken by a larger fish.
The smooth clutch is a multi-plate design with polished brass plates combined with PTFE coated woven glass washer which can also withstandvery high temperatures.
The drag pawl in this reel is supported on a metal pin through the backplate making it ideal to handle larger fish such as when Kayak fishing. Alvey reels are not affected by continual salt water exposure making them ideal for use in Kayaks.
Ideal for freshwater and light saltwater fishing for whiting, bream, perch and tommy ruff.
