Qualia Advanz Q16-II

Rated for 400 yards of 20-pound monofilament line, this is the go-to reel for general trolling

The Qualia Advanz Q16-II two-speed trolling reel is built to take abuse. The main frame is CNC (computer numerical control) billet-machined for maximum frame rigidity. Cold-forged side plates reinforce the frame to maintain strength and parts alignment, and the CNC billet-machined spool resists deformation and spins true. The two-speed transmission, offering 4.2:1 and 1.6:1 ratios, is built with oversize stainless-steel gears and controlled by dependable push-button shift and a simple, reliable release. Rated for 400 yards of 20-pound monofilament line, this is the go-to reel for general trolling, whether it’s inshore for big stripers in the Northeast or beyond the shelf for summertime dolphin, when you still need to be ready for sailfish or wahoo. All components are stainless for long, reliable service; an ergonomic oversize handle reduces fatigue when it’s time to grind. $329.99; www.qualiafishing.com
