    typhoon reel

    Published by Levon cedeno on 1st Feb 2020

    This reel is great. From first use I fell in love with it. With 12lb fluorocarbon I can says this entire spool with ease. The retrieve has landed me 6-7lb large mouth bass with no effort at all. The only problem I’ve had with the reel is the seals don’t really hold well, and it starts to make a high pitch squeal sound. But the performance of the reel didn’t change still a great reel.

    Everything about this reel is amazing, I went with the ceramic bearings in this reel and it casts a mile and is smooth when retrieving.

    Typhoon reel

    Published by Ray Jenkins on 27th Sep 2018

    I have used this reel at least a dozen times since I got it and I have been throwing a toad with it. Once you get it dialed in it cast great even with a light bait. I will be getting several more.

    Bought the Typhoon 7.0:1 and 6.5:1 during the flash BOGO sale. Had major to minor problems with each but with grease and oil on the 7.0, it was cured. The 6.5 was a different matter. Caught a 5lb catfish (on a spinner bait) and next cast it screeeeched. Contacted SixGill about my problem and it was taken care of IMMEDIATELY! They even shipped the new ones to the campground I was going to on Friday for my tournament that Saturday. After getting the replacement reels, I have have had absolutely no problems. Just got my 3rd one yesterday. EXCEPTIONAL reel for the price. Use caution when getting it dialed in. over tighten the spool more than you're use to or you will have to replace your line. Exceptional reel and outstanding customer service.

    cast a country mile

    Published by James Pedalino on 30th May 2018

    The size of this reel is really nice, has enough drag to handle big fish, and will effortlessly cast just about anything a mile. My problems with it is it was not the smoothest running reel on retrieval, which is why I've rated it lower. and if you put too much effort into a cast it will nest even after adjusting.
