The Wraith baitcasting reel is a premium balance of smoothness, power, and light weight. Boasting ultra-smooth hybrid ceramic bearings and an extended carbon fiber cranking arm for effortless line retrieval, plus laser-etched oversized grips for all-weather performance, cranking in lures and landing trophies has never been easier. The stealth black paint scheme will match any premium rod and pairs perfectly with the carbon cranking arm and star drag, while the carbon components and low profile make the Wraith the lightest, most comfortable reel SixGill Fishing has ever offered. Add to that a 17-pound drag and a five-year warranty, and your only worry is how many rods you need to switch over.

    Very impressed!

    Published by Vincent Caruana on 18th Sep 2018

    I own many various Lews models, Shimano Chronarch and Carados. I wanted to try a Sixgill to see how they compaired. I bought this reel about a week ago and wanted to use it some before leaving a review. I fish daily so this reel has been through the paces now. Very smooth retrieve and took a bit to dial in but thats usually the case with any new out of the box reel. It cast about as well as any of my high dollar reels and has a very smooth retrive. I'm impresses and feel spending more on some of the higher end model's would be a good investment. I bought this lower end model because I was a bit shy buying a brand I wasn't familiar with. Very good purchase and I feel this reel compares and even out performs some of my much more expensive reels.

    My favorite reel

    Published by Kenneth Davis on 21st May 2018

    This reel is both light and tough, casting once you get it setup to your style is as easy and effortless as it comes. Combine this reel with a scythe rod, and you won't want to fish anything else. I currently have one of these as a plastics reel. Light weight no more than 1/2 once down to 1/8 once texas rigs, this is for when the bite is slow. Casting small baits with light weights is critical on a lake thats getting heavy pressure. This reel can pitch, flip or cast with great accuracy. It got me a limit on a day when only 9 out of 142 fisher got a limit. By far my favorite reel.

    First reel I’ve paid over 200 for an I can definitely see the difference in quality from cheaper reels. It’s a very light reel looks super slick in all black but I think my favorite thing about it is the over size carbon fiber cranking handle! There is no pause or time inbetween reeling in slack after a cast, as soon as you engage the reel, that oversized carbon handle goes to work! I love it for super long casts and winching fish from cover quick, you will not be disappointed!

    baitcasting made easy

    Published by Unknown on 14th May 2018

    I have a couple high end baitcasting reels and when I use them I seem to get backlash a few times until I get it dialed in and every once in a while it will happen after it's been dialed in. When I got the Wraith I simply put some braid on it and started using it. I havent had a backlash and it cast far and smooth. I like how good it looks and works, that I bought a second one.
