This is my review of the Rovex TLR-2820 boat Reel
This is a superb quality powerful reel which is made from only the finest quality components and materials it is designed to be used on the boats and has a line capacity of 420 yds of 20lbs line the reel feels and looks very stylish with chromed brass side protection rings and an aluminium line spool

The reel comes packaged in a protective cardboard box and comes complete with parts list and a take apart spanner

The front of the reel has a level line guide made from stainless steel this gives a very smooth Acton during retrieval of the line and keeps all the line nice and level on the spool

The reel is operated by a lever this engages and disengages the spool I found this very easy to operate.
The handle of this reel is beautifully crafted it has a soft shaped grip and a counter balance weight this all adds to the smoothness of the reel when in operation
The drag can be set very easy by adjusting the large star drag just inside the handle this is the perfect size so it does not trap your fingers when being adjusted

The opposite side has a line ratchet button this is ideal when free spooling it gives an audible click when line be pulled from the spool

the reel has a stainless steel foot plate this is very robust and engineered in such a way that once the footplate is attached to the rod it becomes a solid safe platform for the reel .
I really like this reel it feels so solid the action of it is very smooth and it feels just right with the soft grip handles.
I can see this reel lasting a long time due to its superb engineering and quality.
the reel looks very stylish and the finish of the side plate protection rings really makes this robust reel stand out the retail of the reel is £64.99 I feel this is great value for money and it is sure to become a firm favourite amongst us kayak fishermen
