Game/Overhead Reels

The overhead Game reel is still the go-to reel for serious game fisherman the world over. While there is a trend for modern game anglers to pit themselves against the world's toughest species with super sized spin reels nothing compares to the sheer strangth and line capacity of the true game reel. If you knew the next fish you were going to hook was the fish you'd been fishing your whole life for you'd want to be harnessed in to one of these reels. This category also includes standard overhead casting reels like the ABU 7000 and Daiwa Saltiga Surf reels, these are not game reels but sit best in this category.
