Black Magic MSF Reels

Browning have been producing top quality match reels for many years, reels such as the Black Viper and Sphere MgTi, however realizing that many anglers nowadays are looking, not just for a reel that is reliable and long lasting but one that’s affordable so have included in the range, not just high end reels but mid and budget ones too.

The Black Magic MSF330 is one of three in this affordable range and includes many of the features that are found in the high end reels, such as two spring loaded line clips, high capacity spool (160m/0.16mm line), silky smooth easily adjustable front drag and powerful gears to name a few. Its compact size and weight, just 238g is ideal for match anglers like myself who like to take a variety of made up rods to cover every eventuality when heading out to a match. It will also appeal to those on a budget who demand the very best as well as the general all-rounder who’s looking for a reel that is ideal for not just feeder work but float work as well.

At first glance you would think this is an expensive reel as it looks fantastic with subtle gold flashes standing out against its grey body and a quick turn of the handle transmits a really smooth balanced feel. Other features include three ball bearings, CNC stainless steel handle, anti-twist line roller; s-curve line distribution for fantastic line lay, continuous anti-reverse, 5.1:1 gear ratio, the list is endless. 

If you are looking for a quality compact affordable reel, one that’s going to last, then it’s worth checking, not just the superb Black Magic MSF range out but all the Browning reels as these guys really do know what they are doing!
