The Dogfight is built strong to handle the strongest running predators including Amberjack, Tuna and even billfish. Each reel features a custom machined aluminum handle, a waterproof drag system, and a machined ABS aluminum spool with titanium nitrided tip.

Saltwater Casting Reel: (Accurate Boss Reels) The Accurate Boss Extreme Series gets our pick for top conventional saltwater reel this season. Accurate is known for refinement and brute strength and has a complete range of sizes from the biggest conventionals to the small yet muscular B-197C which is smaller than most levelwind baitcasters. With this reel anglers can go after big fish with superlines and take advantage Accurate's patented TwinDrag system which delivers extremely smooth and consistent drag pressure at all times.

 

The Accurate B-197C is a compact yet very powerful conventional reel

The TwinDrag system is externally adjustable and can be dialed in on the fly, this same system can be used for trolling and doubles as a cast control system. Accurate offers the reel with a variety of handles including beautifully machined knobs or ergonomic grips. Each reel is designed, manufactured and assembled right here in the USA. The B-197C features a powerful gear ratio of 4.1:0 but a high speed version is also available and the B197XC has a 6.1:0 gear ratio. The B-197C weighs in at 18oz. and is capable of holding 500 yards of 50# spectra based braid.

Built like a tank this little reel boasts robust features including the company's patented TwinDrag system

 

This reel feels extremely solid and is built like a tank so that you know you can depend on it when there is a big fish on the line. Never before has it been so fun to catch big fish with such a compact conventional. The Accurate B197C retails at a very reasonable $398.97 and is available now at Hi's Tackle Box.
