A Smooth Operator
Designed for Launching Rigs a Long Way
Impressive Retrieve Rate
For us our reputation for producing affordable performance reels is embodied in the Profiler series. The design teams brief was simple, combine a silky smooth performance reel with eye-catching good looks. So that’s ‘Job Done’!
But looking deeper at the Profiler 50 there really is more on offer than just understated good looks, there’s performance too! Firstly and most notably, it’s size makes it suitable for most UK lakes and reservoirs. The Profiler 50’s tenor is in distance casting, so when everyone else is yards from the bank you’re targeting that big shoal of carp holding up safely in the middle of the lake. With casting distances up to 100 yards you would be right to expect a high retrieval rate and it has the Profiler 50’s slow oscillation provides a very desirable line lay.
As with all our performance carp reels, the Profiler 50 boasts a range of must have features including an incredibly smooth action. With a nine + one ball bearing spool the ultra smooth winding action is almost effortless. The clutch can be easily adjusted for each setup reducing any potential for line breaks, hook pulls and making free spooling a real pleasure. The Profiler 50 bail arm has a very positive locking action due in part to a beefed up bail spring assembly and you can say goodbye to frustrating line twists and fraps with our precision made stainless steel line roller bushing.
We tested the Profiler 50 on a range of carp rods of varying lengths and it provided a good average balance on the 9, 12 and 13′ rods we tested. Weighing in at just 435g the Profiler 50 is lightweight and ready to perform in all situations. For extra durability, it is supplied with an aluminum and graphite spool. The Profiler 50 is ideally built to accommodate 10lb and 12lb lines however it does offer an excellent spool capacity for the breaking strain line you choose.
