The Daiwa Black Widow BR is a stunning reel for a host of specimen anglers looking for a powerful and reliable reel at an affordable price point. Available in 4 sizes: 3500 A to 5000 A. There is a model size that will suit a range of fishing applications, from small commercial stillwaters to large lochs. Allowing you to target various species from tench, carp to pike.
Despite the affordable price point, the Black Widow BR is a thing of beauty, with slick black looks that will complement any rod, especially the Black Widow rod range. The reel comes equipped with Daiwa's smooth and reliable BR freespool system - free spool functionality is used by flicking the switch at the back. This engages a secondary clutch system that allows a fish to take line freely under a light preset tension. To disengage the free spool system simply turn the handle, the Free Spool facility is automatically shut off and the normal drag setting is resumed allowing you to play and control the fish effectively, AirBail for anti-snag line operation on the hollow stainless steel bail arm also reduces weight and provides durability and rigidity, Twistbuster to minimise line twist and the 4.6:1 ratio retrieve to provide cranking power to tame those specimen sized fish.
Each reel comes with a single, good quality, aluminium spool. The smallest 3500 A model carries 200m of 12lb mono, the 4000 A model takes 240m of 12lb, the 4500 needs 270m of 14lb to fill, and the largest 5000 A swallows 310m of 14lb line.
