Trolling and bouncing the bottom offshore when boat fishing can end up as a high priced affair if you want an overhead reel straight from the top shelf. The Jarvis Walker-Odyssey-Overhead Reel is for sale at the fishing tackle shop, and you get all the rugged capability of top-shelf reels at a fraction of the top-shelf price.
Odyssey reels come equipped with a robust, efficient level wind, ergonomic star drag and finger activated free spool lever, the Odyssey is indeed feature-packed.
Holding a fair amount of 30Lb Mono, with 8kg max of head-turning drag, the Odyssey fishing reel will work brilliantly against the likes of general reefies like snapper, kings, mulloway and countless others.
The 4.5:1 ratio delivers oceans of cranking power, and the oversized handle and grip inspire an aggressive crank for tearing large monsters from depths.
The ratchet feature is ideal for trolling and set baits. You won’t miss a strike opportunity when your Jarvis Walker Odyssey Overhead Reel starts screaming.
Three ball bearings and a stainless gear shaft deliver a smoother crank that will last. The alloy spool and graphite body offer strength while keeping the weight well down. These are excellent materials for keeping the corrosion at bay too.
Given the rock bottom, accessible price point, the Odyssey is an excellent option for decking out the boat with several outfits affordably. You could easily have three Odyssey fishing reels, plus rods, for the price of one top shelf overhead reel of the same capacity.
If you’ve been saving for a performance overhead and haven’t quite got the cash yet, wait no longer. The Jarvis Walker-Odyssey-Overhead Reel-is for sale now, and it can be in your mailbox before you know it.
