Accurate Fishing has built its reputation on making saltwater reels that are smaller and lighter than others in their class, yet capable of taking on surprisingly large, hard-fighting game fish.
Check out the new Accurate BV2-800 series reels.
The latest additions to the company’s popular Valiant series – the new BV2-800 / 800N-sized lever drag reels – are no exception. These reels are designed for trolling for tuna, sailfish, and stripe marlin. Designed to accommodate 80# braided line, these compact powerhouses have what it takes to land some of the toughest pelagic predators off the East, West and Gulf Coasts.
Like all Accurate Valiant lever drag reels, the new BV2-800/800N-sized models incorporate design innovations that maximize strength, rigidity and durability, while minimizing reel size and weight. The latest additions include BV2-800 (standard) and BV2-800N (narrow) two-speeds – all combining superior strength, rigidity and durability with unsurpassed smoothness and fish-fighting power.
Each BV2-800/800N-sized model boasts a compact yet incredibly rugged 6061 T6 aircraft-grade aluminum frame, uniquely curved to deliver the structural integrity of a reel twice its size. The non-flexing frame and side plates, while thinner than those of ordinary lever drag reels, allow Accurate’s Valiant models to withstand higher levels of stress and torque. Protected by this high-strength, corrosion-resistant exterior is Accurate’s patented TwinDrag® system – engineered to deliver up to 36-pounds of pressure for putting the brakes on big, determined saltwater adversaries. Precision-cut stainless steel gears mesh perfectly together so you can turn the handle and gain line on the most stubborn game fish, while seven shielded/sealed Class 5 ABEX bearings and one ARB bearing ensure smooth, reliable operation.
Anglers can choose from either an Accurate Valiant BV2-800 or 800N-sized models to suit their individual requirements and preferences. Accurate’s BV2-800 holds 800-yards of 80# braided line, while the BV2-800N holds 600-yards of 80# test braid. One of the big benefits of the Valiant series is the lightweight aspect of the reel. The BV2-800N weighs a mere 24-ounces and the BV2-800 weighs 25-ounces.
Less weight makes a huge difference over the course of a long fight.
Both models of the 800 series are only offered in two-speed models, you can choose either the BV2-800 or BV2-800N. Both models allow you to switch back and forth easily with Accurate’s DirecShift™ between a high-speed 5:1 retrieve and a winch-like 2.2:1 gear ratio with the simple touch of a button.
Additional Valiant reel features include Accurate’s “power handle,” for comfortable, effective cranking even under wet and slimy conditions, plus a new easy-find “Cam Stop” with a secure indent in the drag cam that prevents the angler from going too far into full drag during the heat of battle.
The new Accurate Valiant BV2-800/800N-sized two-speed reels are available now through authorized tackle retailers nationwide.
