Masters of the Deep XF 651

As more anglers explore our ocean's depths by deep dropping for fishes that live in the dark, more powerful electric reels follow.

As more anglers explore our ocean's depths by deep dropping for fishes that live in the dark, more powerful electric reels follow. Masters of the Deep (Kristal Fishing) introduces the XF 651, a beefed-up version of its popular XL 651. Like the XL, this new reel sports an anodized, solid marine-grade aluminum frame and spool, and sealed composite drive and drag chamber. But Kristal added a more powerful motor and drive system to increase dead-lifting strength and speed. The XF can haul in 420 feet of line per minute - faster than any of Kristal's previous reels. It comes with either a 12- or 24-volt motor and incorporates a constant-on up switch and an intermittent-on up switch that works even if you blow a fuse. The reel weighs 21 pounds and carries 3,600 feet of 200-pound superbraid; retail cost is $2,699. Call 305-592-8686 or visit www.kristalusa.com.
