Accurate ATD Platinum Twin Drag Reels
The ATD Platinum TwinDrag® is the Flagship series of the Accurate line. Designed with Accurate’s patented TwinDrag® feature to deliver smooth, powerful drags, the larger ATD models put out in excess of 100 pounds of drag for targeting giant Bluefin Tuna and Marlin. These reels have been internally designed to handle high drag loads by applying an even amount of pressure on both sides of the reel with two synced dogs to provide the ultimate stopping power. The ATD offers a smooth, even drag that is consistent through the fight with little to no start up inertia, alleviating the possibility of high drag spikes when line comes off the reel. If you are looking to harness the ultimate stopping power for big game fishing, the ATD is the finest reel on the market of its kind.

Shimano - Forcemaster A Electric Reels
Shimano built the new Forcemaster 9000 to be versatile and to meet the needs of anglers deep-dropping for bottom fish or flying kites in South Florida for sailfish and other pelagics. Packed with 55 pounds of drag to provide the power needed under immense loads, the Forcemaster 9000 incorporates Shimano’s Heat Free System II to reduce the reel’s internal temperature when fighting big fish, allowing anglers to focus on what matters most — not exhausting themselves winching on a reel. And with winding speeds of 153 yards per minute, anglers can quickly crank in bottom rigs or reel in kites to change out baits with the speed needed when it matters most during a hot bite. The Forcemaster 9000 also pairs perfectly with both of Shimano’s Talavera Bluewater Deep-Drop rods, ultimately creating a full system to enhance performance when targeting deep-water species.

The simple, quick-shift two speed gearing delivers the best retrieve for line eating speed and for fish fighting power. The wide range, powerful and super smooth carbon fiber drag systems assure excellent control from hook up to boat side.
The light and precise OC 12 and OC 20 models have a large surface single disk carbon drag and the OC 30W and OC 50W models boast a dual carbon drags for even greater control.

And, the whole package is heavily anodized to resist corrosion and keep looking great for season after season.
Ergonomically shaped, counterbalanced handle knobs are ready for a sure grip at all times and assure comfort throughout the longest battle.
