Alvey Boat Reels offer the simplicity and durability of a single action center pin reel. They are ruggedly constructed with large diameter spools and a 1:1 retrieve ratio for maximum power. Features include a smooth 1 1/4″ multi-disc star drag, anti-reverse on-off switch for free spooling, spool tension adjustment, ratchet fish alert with on-off switch, and a spindle grease cap for lubricating the shaft. They are designed to be used with standard boat rods without roller guides. The reel mounts under the rod for better balance and comfort.
