They have both been fishing the venue for over 15 years and have watched the lakes and the fish go from strength to strength.

AVID CARP- ACR 12000 Reel

AVID CARP- ACR 12000 Reel

    The ACR 12000 reel from is the result of a 2-year development process which has lead us to what we believe is the perfect combination of balance, power and durability.

    The ACR 12000 features a long taper spool with super slow oscillation. The spool length helps to reduce friction on the line when casting and the super slow oscillation makes for perfect line lay.

    These 2 features combined make for effortless casting and help to improve distance with ease.

    7 stainless steel ball bearings and 1 roller bearing not only give the ACR 12000 a silky-smooth feel but also help to the lifespan and durability.

    The ACR 12000 is fitted with a rapid front drag system, which allows you in less than one turn to rapidly go from free spool to fight mode with ease.

    A CNC machined aluminium handle with ergonomic soft touch rubber grip provides cranking power and extra grip, even when wet.
