Accurate Reels Introduces The Tern – New Star Drag

Accurate Tern Star Drag Reel

Accurate Fishing has built its reputation on building lever drag reels that are incredibly strong, rigid and durable, yet lighter and more compact than any others in their class. Now, the new Accurate Tern reel offers that same kind of quality and performance in a star drag reel.

Accurate Tern star drag reelThe Tern is unlike any other star drag reel on the market. It’s the first to feature Accurate’s patent-pending TwinStarDrag® for unsurpassed fish-fighting smoothness, consistency and reliability. Featuring one washer on each side of the gear with friction plates, instead of a stack of washers on one side, the Accurate Tern star drag reel delivers an ultra-smooth payout of drag with every click of the ergonomically designed star that fits perfectly in your hand. This precise micro-click star drag system also makes it quick and easy to select the exact amount of pressure needed to overtake a powerful, determined saltwater game fish.

Accurate offers the Tern in three different sizes (300, 400 and 500 sized reels are available), and anglers can choose from models with either a speedy 6:1 retrieve or a more powerful 4.7:1 gear ratio to suit their needs and preferences.

Every Tern reel features Accurate’s advanced CVX technology, which allows for a lightweight frame that’s incredibly strong and rigid, plus an exceptionally light and well-balanced spool for unmatched castability. Durable, corrosion resistant 6061-T6 aircraft-grade aluminum construction enables the Tern to stand up to powerful adversaries and anything the unforgiving marine environment can dish out. The Tern’s rugged exterior houses six stainless steel ball bearing for smooth, reliable operation, Accurate’s exclusive stainless steel anti-reverse bearing, and 17-4 heat-treated stainless steel gears for unsurpassed cranking power.
