Even today, with the space age technology going into your average eggbeater, it’s hard to beat the traditional Alvey reel for fishing the beaches. While the classic Alvey shape and style remains, Alvey have not been sitting still, resting on their laurels, allowing the iconic centre pin side cast reel to push on undeveloped and unrefined.
The Alvey Ripfighter Reel is a master fishing reel for working the beaches. Whether you cast long for Tailor and Salmon working the back breakers or whether you ‘finesse’ the shallow gutters closer to shore, the Alvey Ripfighter Reel provides beach bandits with options and flexibility, with all the simplicity and rugged hard-wearing properties that made Alvey famous in the beginning. It’s so tough, Alvey provides a 10-year sand and salt warranty.
The design features two handles, and inner and outer. The outer for cranking hard and the inner for a fast retrieve, ideal for enticing the speedsters like Tailor and Aussie Salmon. Weighing in at just over a half kilo for the Ripfighter 625BRRT Model or close to 900 grams for the 650BRRT model, graphite has taken out much of the weight. The reel will sit beautifully on a light 3.2 to 4.8-meter low mount beach fishing rod. With the reel positioned slightly further off the rod, casting length has been increased. The feel is incredibly smooth, more refined than the Alvey is known for. Capable of holding generous capacities of mono fishing line , you have all the backup you need should a surfside Mulloway take an interest in your Pilchard.
Alvey anglers will love the new Alvey Ripfighter Reel. Priced to sell, this is a fishing reel that will provide a massive catch list, and will last well into your fishing life. It’s an Alvey, it’s what they do. A superb reel, a legend in its class. Pure beach fishing joy. Get yours now.
