The cluey, well-researched spin reel user will be well aware of the quality of Rovex reels. The Exostrike is a prime example of how strength can be incorporated into a super-lightweight design, without a massive price tag attached. Rovex does this without sacrificing the raw grunt required for aggressive Aussie predators.
The size range boasts small to medium sizes meaning there’s an Exostrike perfectly suited for your inshore fishing application, all you need to do is pick the size you require when placing your order.
With seven stainless bearings and an alloy spool and body, this is a serious fishing reel that will appeal to anglers who demand robust power with sacrificing refined sensitivity.
Drag power is very generous, particularly the 2000 size, which offers a head-turning 13 pounds of max drag. The spool capacities are modest, with shallow spools being chosen over deep spools to enhance casting manners and exclusive use of braided line fishing.
The Rovex Exostrike fishing reel is more about close-quarters lure fishing, so the spool capacities don’t really come into it. Exostrike is about the tight battle amidst the structure, pulling predatory fish from cover, using powerful drag to arrest desperate fish from tackle busting cover.
The Rovex Exostrike 2000 on its own will cover a vast number of applications thanks to the 13 pounds of max drag. For a larger class of fish, the 4000 and 5000 will cover everything from big flatties up to monster greenbacks and Aussie salmon to inshore snapper, barra, Murray cod, and a big list of others.
There are also a few light class beach and rock applications in which the 4000 or 5000 are capable of making them remarkable inshore allrounders. Exostrike spinning reels are incredibly smooth, super-lightweight with oceans of power — Rovex Exostrike reels, now for sale here at the fishing tackle shop.
