The newest version of the Cyclone reel uses a similar body style as our popular Crius and Wraith reels, but that’s just the start. The revamped spool management system is what really defines the reel: thoughtful modifications to the magnetic system, spool spindle, and pinion gear all combine to ensure that the spool is under control at every point in the cast. Backlashes occur due to sudden changes in spool speed, changes that are managed by this new system. As a result, backlashing is minimized when the system is set correctly, even without heavy use of the tension knob. Now, the Cyclone will not only be one of our most affordable reels, it will also be one of our most caster-friendly, for those at any level of experience. Available in several gear ratios, the updated Cyclone is ready for a wide range of casting applications; don’t be surprised if these reels quickly take over your rod locker!

    I have 3 of these reals and in my books they are some fine reels for the money. I would recommend to take the side plate off and drip a drop of good real oil on the 3 bearings for the spool it will make a world of difference.

    I love this reel. Very smooth, super fast retrieve, casts a mile. Only had a couple backlashes at the beginning when I was dialing it in and getting used to the reel. Super comfortable and like it just as much as the big name reels I own. Highly recommend.

    My Father's Day / birthday present was my first brand new, intentionally purchased casting combo. My very first catch on my new Cyclone baitcasting reel with a Chuck series rod was one to remember. I gots to say,'s like going from a BB gun to a sniper rifle! A huge thanks to the Sixgill team for a site that helps me make educated choices. The Cyclone reel has a butter smooth retrieve and casts a country mile.I hope to own more Sixgill gear in the near future.

    Haven’t tried any of the others except the deluge. I really like the cyclone being one of my first baitcasters. If the products only get better the higher the price, I can only imagine how easy and great they must be.
