Click on the link below to see the ALLUX Ruthenium RS Cast reel and ALCEDO Green Line Jigging rod in action. The redtail catfish was estimated at 50lbs. The jau was weigehd as we thought it might be a new IGFA All Tackle record. In the end it was about 10lbs short, but it is still a massive specimen.
The ALLUX Ruthenium RS Cast reel will only be available in South Africa next year. The ALCEDO Green Line Jigging 150-300g rod is already available in South Africa and Namibia.
The arapaima below was landed in South America last month on an ADRENALIN XMaster 20 multiplier reel. ADRENALIN XMaster multipliers continue to make a name for themselves as an extremely reliable surf casting reel, yet very affordable. The ADRENALIN XMaster multipliers are available in a 20 and 40 size and both also come in black (pictured left) and gold finishes.
The ADRENALIN XMaster PRO range was launched recently. At the moment the range includes 3 reels (50 Pro, 40 Pro and 40 Pro with levelwind) with more sizes to be added soon. The PRO series feature a much stronger drag (up to 15kg) as well as a 7.1:1 gear ratio compared to the 6.0:1 gear ratio on the standard XMaster.
Big Jau landed on an ALCEDO Green Line Jigging 150-300g rod and ALLUX Ruthenium Cast RS reel. The ALLUX Ruthenium CAST RS will only be available in South Africa in 2016. The reel is very similar to the ALLUX Elect Tropics Surf that is already available in South Africa and Namibia. Both these reels come with long cast spools, extremely strong drags (16 & 18kg) and can take plenty of line. Sealed drags and bodies make these reels perfect for salt water fishing.
The very affordable Alcedo Green Line Vertical Jigging rod is light, easy to handle and extremely strong.
