Cabela's Depthmaster Metal/Tourney Trail Trolling Combo -
The DepthMaster Metal linecounter reel teamed up with the Tourney Trail trolling rod are a trolling enthusiast's dream in a money-saving package.
A reel that represents the future of trolling-reel technology. Its base is a lightweight, yet rugged frame built of A6061-T6 machined aluminum with reinforcing stainless steel sideplate rings. The anodized-aluminum spool is fed by a heavy-duty, stainless steel, wide-mouth levelwind that's titanium-coated to withstand abusive braided and wire lines. The levelwind's opening is enlarged to allow snag-free use of double lines and passage of knots. A mechanical linecounter measures line out in feet. Cranking power is provided by a hardened-brass XL gearing with an enlarged gearing system and enlarged drag system. Large gear teeth increase the reel's gear strength and cranking power, while the drag surface area is more than 50% larger than most standard gearbox designs. The larger drag system features Carbonite, an innovative, carbon-based material that displaces heat and friction consistently and affords optimal control, even in harsh conditions. Ratcheting star drag operation allows precise settings. Two stainless steel ball bearings plus one anti-reverse roller bearing. Balanced aluminum handle with oversized, soft-touch handle knob. Silent retrieve system for ultrasmooth operation.
Developed for light-line trolling with either monofilament or braided line, these rods' graphite composite blanks have a 60% graphite, 40% E-glass composition for moderate tip action and medium power. Black EVA foam grips are comfortable on the hands. Pac Bay Minima casting guides weigh 20-30% less than ceramic ring equivalents. Durable graphite reel seat has a trigger and exposed hood.
