Snowbee Deep Blue Boat Reels

Posted by Editor On October - 30 - 2010

Snowbee Deep Blue 12 ReelIn keeping with our recent report that sea fishing tackle is a growth area this year, Snowbee had a lot of new items for the saltwater angler at the recent Tackle & Guns trade show. They have clearly invested a lot of time in this discipline, building out their Deep Blue brand.

I particularly liked the look of two new multiplier reels; both high quality, CNC machined lever-drag boat reels, in a similar design to something like the Avet range (one of my personal favourites). I hope the photo goes some way to show the quality.

The Snowbee Deep Blue 10 offers 10kg of drag pressure, a 5.2:1 gear ratio, holds 250m of 0.40mm line and weighs in at 460g. The bigger Deep Blue 12 offers 12kg of drag, a 5.8:1 gear ratio, holds 450m of 0.40mm line and weighs 550g. Both reels are single speed, full metal construction and have a very comfortable offset rubber power handle. I can confirm that the drag on the display model was very smooth - this is premium stuff.

The Recommend Retail Price for the Snowbee Deep Blue 10 is £239, while the larger Deep Blue 12 is reported to be £259.

With any hope we'll see these new reels enter the market before the end of the year. Drooling over.
