A great salmon reel doesn’t have to be as light as a feather. On the contrary, it can be good to have some weight in your reel. When used with a long double hand rod, a reel is a much needed balancing element. In a world of big brute fish and rocky, slippery river banks, a salmon reel has to be able to take a quite a lot of beating and punishment unlike its trout class cousins used on small streams. With the proven brake system from our highly popular GT reel at it’s heart, Tank is armour plated and ready for war.
The outlook of the reel follows closely classical salmon reel design principles with only few holes on the handle side of the reel to provide some amount of ventilation for your line and backing after long fishing hours. A full cage design will eliminate those unfortunate occasions when thin running line gets jammed between the frame and the spool. The final touch in our quest for old-school atmosphere comes in the form of absolute kick ass
brake sound - it just can’t get better than this. When we were thinking how to name the newborn, words like durability, weight, solid metal surfaces, strong machinery and loud noise were flying around. After a bit of a brainstorming, the name Tank easily overran the other candidates. Tank is available in three different sizes: Tank 3 for #7-9, Tank 4 for #9-11and now the Big brother of them all... Tank 5 for #pretty much anything.
