This is our first fixed spool range aimed directly at the match or dedicated angler who fishes with long range, fixed spool surf casting rods and needs the flexibility of using different diameter lines. Our most versatile fixed spool reel giving the angler endless options to suit each fishing situation.
Until now anglers have had to source expensive, after market spools for their beach reels to enable them to carry a full compliment of lines they might require for a session. This was often very expensive and time consuming. The Virtuoso XT Reel comes with two spools as standard, a deep and a medium spool, while the Virtuoso ST comes with a medium spool. Both of these spool types are available to buy separately along with a shallow spool giving the angler endless line carrying options.
All spools are interchangeable with both our ST and XT Virtuoso models. Each spool comes with a spool band to make sure your line stays secure on the spool during transport. Spools are colour coded so they can be identified easier, especially useful when looking top down into a spool case. The Tronixpro Spool Bag has been designed specifically to carry a large array of spools and is the ideal choice to transport spools with ultimate protection.
Spools are priced (RRP) from £15.99 for the Medium and Deep Spool and £17.99 for the Shallow Spool. Each spool has the following capacities:
- Shallow (350m of 0.20mm – 250m of 0.28mm – 200m of 0.35mm)
- Medium (380m of 0.35mm – 330m of 0.40mm – 295 of 0.45mm)
- Deep (475m of 0.40mm – 422m of 0.45mm – 380m of 0.50mm)
The entry level 8000 sized Virtuoso is finished in stunning black with red detail to create a sleek looking, desirable reel. Under the hood there are 9 Shielded Stainless Steel Bearings for durability when used in harsh saltwater conditions and for smoothness when retrieving. The precision drag allows you to set your drag to minute detail depending on the conditions and intended catch. A slow oscillation system provides the best line lay on the spool, this enhanced line lay promotes longer casts.
The Virtuoso ST comes with a medium spool and weighs 590g. It has a 4.6:1 Gear Ratio.
The Virtuoso ST has an RRP of £59.99.
The top end Virtuoso comes in an 8000 size like the ST but comes with two spools (a medium and a deep) and 11 Shielded Stainless Steel Bearings for even greater smoothness and durability. The reel also features a comfortable EVA grip, ideal for cranking in leads and fish from long distances. Like the ST the reel features a slow oscillation retrieval system for better line lay and casting distances and an ultra precision drag.
The use of lightweight materials reduces the weight of the XT to 530g reducing angler fatigue and creating a more balanced casting outfit. The gear ratio is 4.6:1.
The Virtuoso XT has an RRP of £79.99.
