Levered Automatic Reel
We recently started stocking a levered “automatic” reel that many of the top tier competition anglers are using. I used one in Tasmania this winter and thought it was very unique and certainly offered some advantages to picking up line on to the spool when you were not in a position to reel in a traditional manner. This is not your grandpa’s old spring loaded automatic reel. In fact, it is not spring loaded at all, instead it uses the lever to initiate simple gearing to take in line.
