A narrow width, large arbour design fly reel for fast, level retrieve, the GX500 also features a unique system of friction fit identification pins. The Line ID system allows you to clearly mark the spool with line size, density, sink profile and core type, so you can select the correct line at a glance.
Ported arbour design and a superb Greys drag system makes this a tough but extremely light reel. 4/5/6 and 6/7/8 weights.
Never Forget Yor Lines Again
The Line ID system is ideal for those competition and serious stillwater anglers who take upwards of 20 spools with different lines, but the GX700 and GX500 are also ideal for the more 'every day' angler who may only take a floating, sinking and intermediate line with them - the reels come with two spare spools and a carry case meaning you're all set. And if you need even more spools, add to your collection for just 9.99. Better still, the GX700 spools are interchangeable with the GX500 of equivalent size, and vice versa.
