EFTTEX Awards: TronixFishing Xenon DV8 offers supreme balance and weight
Balance and weight are important factors that determine how well you can cast and maximise your distance.
The new Xenon DV8 reel from UK-based TronixFishing has been developed as a lightweight fixed spool reel designed to give greater balance when using three-piece and two-piece fixed spool rods, in particular Tronix’s own extensive range of three-piece surfcasting rods.
When the overall outfit is balanced and light, the speed at which you can move the rod through the air increases, improving momentum and overall casting distance. To achieve this lightness, the body and rotor have been built from a carbon composite body which is strong and durable and takes grams off the overall reel weight.
Inside the reel six stainless steel shielded bearings alongside a tough worm drive gearing provide a smooth retrieve. The 4.6:1 gear ratio powers a nippy line recovery of one metre per handle turn, perfect for those long-distance casts.
To ensure longer, smooth casting, a slow oscillation system produces perfect line lay, avoiding line bunching across the spool that can cut yards from your cast. A quick set, powerful drag produces 35lb of pressure to help subdue lively, fast running fish for ultimate control.
To combat reel vibration and lateral movement, the DV8 comes with an Anti-Vibration System (AVS). It holds all the internal components in their precise place when the reel is under pressure, ensuring it is working at its maximum all the time, making it easier to land bigger fish.
The reel comes supplied with a medium-sized spool and there are additional Deep, Shallow and Teflon spools available to buy separately.
