The design of the new 655 XF X-treme Fishing
electric reel from Kristal USA was based on the very popular XL 651. This anodized, solid marine-grade aluminum framed, aluminum spooled reel, features sealed composite drive and drag chambers that are incredibly strong. Tested under the most severe environmental conditions, this reel provided the perfect chassis for the creation of a monster! Make no mistake about it, the XF 655 is the monster truck of electric reels.
First, Kristal added a new, more powerful motor that generates more dead lifting power than any reel in its class so you can muscle the biggest fish off the bottom. It is remarkably quiet and O-ring sealed for long life in the marine environment. It's faster than any reel ever built by Kristal, capable of hauling in a blazing 420 feet of line per minute. It incorporates a beefed up synchronous, multi-tooth drive system based around a near silent, reinforced rubber, lugged drive belt that is incredibly strong and dependable. It's the same type of system used in expensive racing engines and that has replaced the drive chain on modern motorcycles. The new ball bearing lever-drag is the smoothest you'll find on any electric and more than up to handling anything short of a nuclear submarine.
If you like extreme fishing, going where others fear to tread because their gear isn't up to the challenge, then the XF 655 is the reel for you. It is available with a 12-volt motor with a simple, yet bulletproof, electrical system that incorporates a "constant on" up switch and an "intermittent on" up switch that works even if you blow a fuse.
