Alvey has recently introduced its new Orbiter Baitcaster reel to the market. Finished in a frozen matt grey with gunmetal and anodised gold highlights, it’s certainly attractive to look at. The Orbiter features six stainless steel ball bearings built into the one-piece die-cast super rigid frame with nylon hybrid side caps.
Super comfortable EVA covered handles on a long, powerful handle plate give the angler lots of jigging strength at the fast 7.1:1 recovery rate. A smooth infinite anti-reverse system tops off these features.
A special component of the V-shaped, dual colour anodised spool is its quick exchange system, allowing the angler to fish with more than one size line for different situations. The line runs through a Titanium-coated guide for long life and smooth action.
An adjustable magnetic brake system allows ultimate control in casting, while a maximum 8kg of smooth clutch pressure through carbon drag washers will control the strongest fish via a gloss black alloy star drag.
Reel weight is less than 300g, and line capacities are: 0.30mm – 220m , 0.33mm – 180m , 0.40mm – 120m.
These new Alvey Orbiters reels will be offered in left hand or right hand set-up, and should be available from the end of July.
