We met the folks over at WaveSpin back at ICAST 2007 and each year is an opportunity to stop by and say hello once again to see what’s new with this innovative company. The big news for them this year of course, was the Doug Hannon designed and patented MicroWave guide for spinning rods. News that we’ve already shared with you in our coverage of Castaway Rods, who holds the exclusive license for this product.


Another look at the new Doug Hannon designed Microwave spinning rod guide.

But in the WaveSpin booth itself, Russ Riley showed us the product he’s most excited about and that’s a more cost effective version of their already popular line of spinning reels. The ZTR1500 and ZTR3000 offer the same innovative designs as the original DH series of reels but at an even more economical price.

As if the WaveSpin reels weren't already a great value...

The ZTR1500 is rated for 160 yards of six pound line, features a gear ratio of 5.0:1 (~22 inches per turn of the handle), four ball bearings, weighs eight ounces, and comes with a one year warranty - all for $45.95 retail.

The new ZTR series are all under $50!

The ZTR3000 is rated for 160 yards of ten pound line, features a slightly higher 5.1:1 gear ratio (~26.5 inches per turn), the same 4 ball bearings, weighs ten ounces and comes with a one year warranty for $49.95 retail.

Conclusion: Walt Disney World resorts just recently renewed their agreement with WaveSpin to have their product be the official reels of their guided fishing excursions. Now with the new, more economical alternative to their innovative reel line, WaveSpin makes more sense than ever for children or anyone else breaking into the world of fishing and wanting to save a few dollars on a good product.
