Masterline Tideline Boat Reel

This is my first impression review of this reel
The first thing you notice is the solid design and the quality of the product it’s a very robust reel its made for big fish it would make the ideal tope reel the lever drag is a big plus in this reel its so smooth to operate and the fully reinforced rugged frame should give many years of good service

The lever drag system is both smooth to operate and very responsive note the small black button this is used as a gauge when playing a fish out then if necessary you can push the button in and increase the drag to maximum

The large shaped handle grip and counter weight makes reeling in very comfortable on the hands and the easy positioning of the lever drag handle means the drag can easily be operated with the thumb

the very sturdy 1 piece reel plate is chrome plated for easy cleaning

All in all this is a very well made quality reel for bigger fish the quality speaks for its self it should last years. All that is needed to care for it is a quick dip in fresh water after each session I found it very easy to use I liked the drag system it is so smooth to use.
The counter balanced shaped handles make it easy to reel fish in.
The reel retails at £59.95 and I think represents brilliant value
