It takes a while for the forward-thinking design of the Makaira and Cedros Lever Drag offshore reels to sink in. And in many cases, it’s not until anglers experience the reels for themselves that the process truly begins.
And then again, there are those that could honestly care less about advanced design features, so long as the reels excel in the performance arena.
And it’s all good with us.
Whether you appreciate Makairas for their technical advancements, power, performance or handling, it’s all about creating exceptional experiences on the water. And that’s what makes reports like this one from Bloodydecks.com so gratifying:
“I was impressed with the Makaira 15’s. The fit and finish on them is very good and the drag was really smooth. Great live bait reel and made quick work of the 150lb class tuna using 80lb spectra. One feature that attracted me for PV use were the harness eyelets. From a guy who spent 5 hours pulling on a 300lber with a McGuyvered harness attached to a JX, I can see its benefit. Of course, only a season of PV style punishment will be the true test. I will likely buy a 20 and 30 for fly lining cabbies during cow season.”
When all the work in design and construction returns a day like these guys had… it’s why we come to work everyday.
What an outstanding trip. Check out their complete report here: http://www.bloodydecks.com/forums/mainland-mexico-fishing-reports-discussion/237769-sunday-tunafest-pv-6-6-10-a.html
