Accurate Fishing Products, originator of the patented TwinDrag reels, is launching a new single-drag reel featuring the same quality Accurate is known for, but a smaller price point.
The Accurate Boss Fury will be available in a single-speed configuration offering either a 4.1:1 or 6.1:1 gear ratio to meet the needs of anglers hunting down their local big game. The Boss Fury will also be offered in two-speed models featuring a 3.1:1 low and a 6.1:1 high speed in the 400 and 500 models, and a 2.2:1 low and 5.1:1 high in the 600 model. These larger reels will take on any fish you throw at them, whether it’s a stout grouper holding to the bottom or a yellowfin tuna that takes you the rail.
These new lever-drag reels, like their counterparts, are made of 6061 T6 billet aircraft aluminum to reduce weight and add strength. They feature a very simplistic design with stainless steel gears, wet drag for smoothness, and an ergonomic rubber handle that fits perfectly in your hand. The lightweight reels are both comfortable and extremely easy to fish with. The Fury also has the same good looks as all Accurate reels and comes with a brushed aluminum finish.
According to Accurate, the company has wanted to offer an introductory reel for some time ”” a reel that would meet the needs of a wide range of fishing situations without a huge price tag. “People enter the market with a single drag purchase. Then as they gain confidence fishing they look for better tackle which leads them to a twin-drag reel,” says Accurate’s VP of Sales and Marketing Ben Secrest. “We have been working towards developing a quality single drag for them to purchase directly from Accurate. This gives the customer a starting point with our brand, which in the past they could not afford.”
The Accurate Boss Fury is priced $150 less than anything the company currently sells.
The Fury reels (both single and two-speed) will be available in 400X, 500X and 600X sizes. The 400 is rated for 40-pound braid, the 500 for 50-pound and the 600 for 60-pound. While they were constructed primarily for fishing with braid, they work fine with monofilament as well.
The reel was named through Accurate’s “Name Our Reel” contest. The winner, Ron Bryan, came up with “The Boss Fury by Accurate,” which will be engraved on every reel. The contest gathered 1,200 potential names but Ron’s Fury won out, and he will receive the first reel off the assembly line and the company will engrave his name on it.
400X = 300 yards 20-pound mono, 400 yards 40-pound braid
500X = 300 yards 25-pound mono, 425 yards 50-pound braid
600X = 300 yards 40-pound mono, 450 yards 65-pound braid
Accurate’s Boss Fury was designed with fishermen needs in mind. If you’re chasing bullet tuna, schoolie dorado or trying to catch your first white seabass, the single-drag Fury will meet your fishing needs at an affordable price.
