A rock solid one-piece feel becomes obvious given all the metal in Alloy, compared to lesser quality reels made of graphite typically found at this highly affordable price.
Anglers will be quick to feel the unique soft touch rubber paint on the stem of this reel, a make-sense addition that’s sure to bring more comfort to a long day on the water. But comfortable operation is best anchored in Alloy’s eight bearings.
Available in both right and left hand retrieve, a graphite rotor lessens Alloy’s overall weight, as do machined holes designed to take weight out of the rotor. A heavy duty anodized bail wire adds to Alloy’s durability.
Alloy is available in sizes 20, 30 and 40, and can also be purchased in combo form with an IM8 two piece graphite rod featuring cork handles and lightweight guides for around $79. But again, if you want the only all metal bodied reel in fishing for around $59 – there’s only one - Alloy.
