Free running reels: not only popular with carp anglers!
Free running reels are classically used for carp fishing, but are also very popular when fishing for sturgeon, catfish or zander. The special feature of free running reels is the freewheeling lever, which allows the fish to pull fishing line without feeling resistance even though the reel handle is closed. A turning knob on the back of the free running reels allows the sensitivity and thus the resistance of the line pull to be adjusted.
Fighting drag reels are basically conventional rear drag reels with an additional small lever on the rear drag. This lever can be operated with one finger and allows the brake to be quickly readjusted during a fight. Free running reels and fighting drag reels are perfect for fighting fish as they give you the control and flexibility you need..
