xcite bf reel 1


New Product Launch - XCITE BF Reels

Looking for the perfect reel for Method feeder fishing? The new Xcite BF free-spool reels are perfect for match fishing for carp and other powerful fish. The free-spool system instantly gives line when engaged to stop carp from smashing the line on vicious bites. 

As you have come to expect from Browning reels, the Xcite has been designed to be a rugged work-horse that will not let you down. The strong construction features a compact carbon graphite body and rotor which houses the precision engineered gears. Line lay on the aluminium spool is faultless, for improved casting distance and accuracy. 

Each spool is fitted with two line-friendly clips. One is a traditional design, whilst the second has a softer construction, enabling the line to release under pressure before the line breaks – a useful innovation when big carp are likely to be encountered. 

The precision front drag can be adjusted to give line consistently and can be relied upon to not let you down. The instant anti-reverse enable fish to be landed faster, and for the tension on the rod tip to be adjusted precisely, so no bites are missed. 

A brilliant addition to the Browning range of reels, just perfect for feeder fishing for big fish.

Sphere CFT Reels

Browning Sphere CTF Reels

I have to admit that although I look after my tackle and give everything a good clean after every match or pleasure session, during an actual competitive match my tackle does go through a bit of punishment. Rods and especially reels get most punishment and need to be up to the job, robust and reliable and the new CFT reels look like they are perfect in every way for my style of angling.

Straight away the lightness of these reels is incredible and this is down to using the very best high-quality composite materials wherever possible as well as the weight saving holes on the main body. Although light this reel feels solid and robust and it’s striking looks, set out in the Sphere colour, instantly transmits quality. Casting is a dream due to the line lay which is perfect on the CNC machined spool with optimised front edge. The reel is compact and the spool is easily reached even with short fingers, meaning trapping and feathering down is effortless. Once a fish is hooked the smoothness and power really kicks in due to the tuned gears and finely adjustable front drag. 

Other features include two line friendly line clips, one being made of rubber, so no worries here and they come with spares so you can fit the reel out with which ever you prefer. This reel is loaded with high tech features and created using some of the most modern materials available, ones that just will not only bring maximum satisfaction but will give you years of service.

I can see this reel being a massive hit with not just anglers targeting carp on commercials but anglers that love to float fish due to the easy accessible spool, perfect line lay and incredible smoothness.
