Defiance Level Wind Reels

New for 2012, these reels are ideal for the budget-conscious angler who won’t settle for anything less than the best. Corrosion-proof, lightweight graphite frame and side plates, fully encircled by stainless steel rings, prevent frame flex and distortion. Machine-cut, marine-grade bronze main gear and hardened stainless steel pinion gear smoothly transmit power to the anodized aluminum spool. Multi-disc HT-100 carbon-fiber drag washers provide smooth, consistent drag under the heaviest loads. Three easy-to-see line capacity rings help you keep track of your remaining line.
  • Type: Conventional

Comments about Defiance Level Wind Reels:

I use this on a stout rod with 20lb mono for catfish in a fairly fast flowing river, the biggest cat so far was only about 12lbs. and I had zero problems with the reel. The line tangle is backlash and may be because I haven't gotten it properly adjusted yet or the rod is a little funky to cast with, or my thumb gets stupid ;c).
