After being launched in 1990, Accurate fishing products built a solid reputation over the following years manufacturing products from gaffs to reels.  Based in Southern California, they are now best known for building reels at the very extreme of performance and durability.  Couple these attributes with their striking good looks, and it's no wonder they receive constant praise.  With some new reels being added to the lineup at ICAST 2012, there now is even a model that should interest freshwater anglers as well!


The new SR-6 reel is small enough to be used for freshwater and inshore fishing.


SR-6 Spinning reel:  The new SR-6 model joins the family of rock solid Twinspin Twin drag spinning reels.  With it's smaller size this reel will be right at home fishing for freshwater species like Bass and Steelhead, or inshore saltwater fish like Snook and Stripers.  This fully machined reel hosts a variety of impressive features such as the patented Twin drag system, unique power handle, 14 ball bearings, a manual bail for maximum casting, and much more.  Weighing in at 10 ounces, it will hold 110 yards of 10lb mono or up to 160 yards of 30lb braid.   Look for the SR-6 to be available in September at a price of $599.99.


This is a great looking reel with an interesting handle design.


The Dawg Pound Xtreme 2 speed reels are set to arrive shortly.


DPX 2 reels:  The new Dawg Pound Xtreme 2 speed or DPX 2 reels feature a triple dog and pawl setup for the ultimate in strength and stopping power.  These reels also contain features like a lever drag, larger anti reverse bearing, and stronger, larger gear shaft.  These reels are made to be compact workhorses capable of tackling huge offshore species.  They are a perfect choice to withstand the torture of fishing braided line.   Look for the DPX 2 reels to be released in September with 11 models available for a price ranging from $599-$689.

Halco Lures:   Accurate is excited to be the US dealer for tackle company Halco.  Based in Australia,  Halco makes a variety of lures and terminal tackle.  We were impressed by the quality of their baits and the variety they had on hand.
