Scientific Angler reels
A current reigning trend in reels is large arbors and ScientificAnglers is reintroducing its System 2 line for that market. Thebest-selling in the industry, the System 2 LA reels are trulylarge-arbor, with a larger reel diameter, not just a larger spool,to help achieve the fastest retrieves.
The System 2 reels feature advanced barstock-machined finishesfor ultimate durability and an anodized finish, as well as ananodized reel foot for corrosion and abrasion resistance.

Inexpensive quick-change spools are alsoavailable. Ideal for saltwater fishing is the 678 model for 6, 7and 8 weights and the 890 for 8, 9 and 10 weights. Both have apolished heavy-duty stainless-steel caliper disk drag, as well ascarbon-fiber drag pads found in all SA reels and a palming rim foradded pressure.
