Lindgren Pitman Electric Dredge Reel
The Lindgren Pitman Electric Dredge Reel features 12 volt operation and comes complete with 15 FT power cord and a Hubbell HBL 3280 CP 30 AMP 28 VDC rated male plug. This electric dredge puller has all the important features needed for successfully pulling large triple tiered dredges offshore. The inert gas filled sealed display hosts features including AutoStop, Level Wind, interchangeable spools, and dual speed operation. This reel's total evenly distributed weight is 20 LBS, allowing for a variety of convenient mounting options suitable for pulling dredges.
The smart cantilever design of the LP S1200 features a 2 stage lever drag that allows the angler to adjust the preset drag while the lever is engaged, there is no need to go to free spool, adjust, and then re-engage the drag.
Lindgren Pitman Electric Dredge Reel
This is one very impressive electric reel, however after taking the tour at Lindgren Pitman headquarters here in our hometown of Pompano Beach, impeccable machining, a stringent quality control process, and American craftsmanship at it's finest is evident throughout the facility, hence the superiority of American manufacturing, and the performance of Lindgren Pitman products. Very impressive and nothing short of amazing.
This reel has a few features that are decisively different from other reels. First and foremost the reel features an interchangeable spool system that is both quick and simple. This allows the angler to have as many spare spools of line as he/she wants, allowing not only different line sizes, but also different line types. For example an angler who pulls dredges to attract tuna and marlin, may also like to do daytime sword fishing drops. the Lindgren Pitman Electric Dredge Reel allows this to happen through a simple change of the spool.
LP Dredge Reel Spare Spools
Given the ability to have several spare spools, the fishing opportunities are nothing short of unlimited. It is important to note that since the reel has a level wind, it is imperative that the level wind feature have the standard adjustable function featured on the LP Electric Dredge Reel. This function is especially important when switching spools for it allows the angler to maintain line order upon changing the spool. It is important to note that the level wind must be used when spooling not only your main spool, but your spare spools as well. Once spooled, a small piece of tape should be used to tape the tag end to the location where the level wind completed the spooling process of your spare spools. This will allow for a quicker more comprehensive changing of the spool as well as adjustment of the level wind's location.
LP Dredge Reel Rod Butt Base Clamp System
The Lindgren Pitman Electric Dredge Reel features reel base clamps instead of a standard reel seat. This is a clear advantage because the clamps allow the weight of the reel to be equally distributed on the actual butt of the rod, instead of on the fixed rear hood, adjustable top hood, and the double collet nuts of the aluminum butt. Unbeknownst to a lot of anglers the rear hood of aluminum butts are glued to the aluminum pipe of the butt. This hood is designed to hold reels based on the line class of the butt itself. In addition, the rear hood is meant to hold a reel whose weight is equally distributed. I strongly recommend no less than a #4 aluminum butt. All our Sceptre Deep Drop and Swordfish Rods feature #4 aluminum butts, as well as optional #6 butts for those who prefer the unlimited class aluminum butt size.
LP Dredge Reel Large Digital Display & Push Button Controls
The large display digital line counter of the Lindgren Pitman Electric Dredge Reel is easy to see. It provides an accurate measurement of line out, the display is also backlit for enhanced visibility during PM hours or overcast days. In order to understand the functionality of the AutoStop feature It is important to understand that the line counter never goes into negative numbers, the display & the reel will always stop at ZERO. While the display will not go into negative numbers, the RESET button on the reel will allow you to set an adjusted ZERO baseline at the exact location you want your reel to stop reeling.
Overall the Lindgren Pitman Electric Dredge Reel is an impressive electric reel that is loaded with unique features. This reel features the necessary power to take on big fish in big waters! As with all the products I sell, I am always available to answer any questions you may have!
