Introduction: Duckett may still be known best for their rods but with each season the brand continues to refine their reel offering. This ICAST the focus from the company in the new product showcase was their new flagship Paradigm CRW casting reels.


Meet Duckett's new flagship baitcaster, the Paradigm CRW


A Casting Paradigm: The new baitcaster follows the introduction of the Paradigm SWX spinning reels that were introduced earlier this year. The new Paradigm low-profile reels feature a similar black and white design that matches up well with just about all the rods that the company offers. This reel comes loaded with a 10 Japanese bearing system and the drive gear is constructed from duraluminum which offers a good balance of weight and durability.


The Paradigm features easy access cast control


The reels are designed to manhandle even the biggest bass and Duckett includes a large stack of carbon washers in the drag system which is rates at 20lbs. 



The reel is a good match for the similarly styled Paradigm spinning reel introduced prior to ICAST


A reinforced gear support system not only helps improve performance out of the box, but is designed to keep the reels performing well over the long haul. To help keep things organized the reel has a line weight indicator on the inner frame, and cast control is externally adjustable.




The Paradigm CRW features a swept handle with ergonomic knobs


The Duckett Paradigm CRW reels are available in 6.8:1, 7.5:1, and 8.3:1 retrieve ratios and the reel weighs in at a very reasonable 6.9ounces. Unlike most of the tackle being introduced this ICAST the Paradigm CRW is a true "hard launch" and the reels are already available at retailers including Tackle Warehouse for $249.99.
