Leeda's sea brand, ICON, is pleased to announce that iceTackle* 2019 will see the launch of the long-awaited FXD Surf 70 and 80 reels, the first new fixed spool reels from the brand for several seasons.
This duo has been created to sit alongside the FXD range of rods, which have brought continental-style design to rods that have been honed for UK beach fishing situations.
The reels feature an ultra-slow oscillation that enables amazing line lay for improved casting potential without sacrificing sheer grunt for reeling in big fish and heavy weights. A ratio of 4.9:1 and 10+1 bearing means performance should be as slick as it is smooth. A titanium-coated line roller is a nice touch for durability and the tapered spool is what many anglers look for as standard on a casting reel these days.
Aluminium spare spools will be available from launch and will cost £19.99 RRP, coming in deep and shallow versions to cater for braid and monofilemnt respectively.
ICON will also be debuting new FXD rods at the show, with details coming over the next few weeks so make sure you register now to be among the first to see everything new at the show.
