Seigler LG 6:1 Gear Ratio Blue & Silver Fishing Reel
The Seigler LG 6:1 Gear Ratio Blue & Silver Fishing Reel is a 6:1 gear ratio aluminum lever drag reel that features a long crank arm that provides extra torque when bottom fishing. The gear ratio and spool diameter provides for a 52 inch per crank line retrieval rate. This reel may be used for not only fishing bottom, but it is an excellent live bait reel as well. The extra torque makes this an excellent choice for anglers who fish on kayaks. Kayak anglers know that when fishing at water level extra torque provides a clear advantage over other fishing reels in this class. Seigler Reels are made in the USA.
This reel will hold 500 yards of 20 LB Test Monofilament, 600 yards of 65 LB braided line, or 500 yards of 80 LB spectra braid.
Seigler LG 6:1 Gear Ratio Blue & Silver Fishing Reel The Truth, and nothing but! I love Seigler Reels. Made in the USA, they feature US grade metals, craftsmanship, and a rigorous quality control process. The LG is an aluminum lever drag reel that features a longer crank handle. The extra length of the handle provides for increased torque, yet this reel maintains a healthy line pick up rate of 52 inches per crank, which makes for a very awesome combination! The extra torque is a great advantage for fishing bottom, however, it is also of great importance to kayak anglers who sit at water level when fighting big fish. Extra torque is of paramount importance when fishing in a kayak.
