This reel has been designed to offer both ratchet and free run functions. The reel is always set in the ratchet/locked position; to select free running mode, simply depress the spring actioned ratchet pawl with your thumb, which is located just above the main frame handle. This operation can be carried out with same hand that holds the reel. Because of its unique design, the reel is snag-free and the tension of the spool run may also be adjusted to suit individual needs. The reel size is 11.5cm in diameter by 8cm deep - the Pocket Reel is the perfect solution for SMB work. Weighing in at only 0.3 kg the Pocket Reel can be easily stowed in your BCD/suit pocket or clipped to a D-Ring. The reel is available with 50 metres of 2mm line with a breaking strain of 98kg, and a choice of white, neon yellow or pink line.
