Pinnacle/Silstar's Deadbolt Standard

Pinnacle/Silstar's Deadbolt Standard

Pinnacle/Silstar's Deadbolt Standard spinning reels offer a surprising number of top-of-the-line features for only $44.99. Each of the four reels in the series has an oversized titanium-shielded roller, machined aluminum spool, stainless-steel bottom plate to protect the body, constant anti-reverse, no-wobble rotors and two stainless bearings. Van Staal started out with spinning reels of surpassing wonderfulness, and now flyfishermen also have something to bust the bank for. The FR30 Elburg takes 5-, 6-, or 7-weight line. You can change spools in 15 seconds, and the permanently sealed drag system runs on ball bearings. Available colors are black, silver, and gold. If you'd like something bigger, consider the FR35 Spakenburg and the FR40 Zeeland. Prices? Friends, you don't get stuff like this for free-they start at $595. % 800-718-7335; www.vanstaal.com
