Offshore Angler Frigate Rod & Reel
Offshore anglers looking to win a fight should arm themselves with the new Offshore Angler Frigate Spinning Rod and Reel combo. This rod and reel combo has been battle-tested by charter boat captains and found to be one of the toughest, smoothest saltwater reels around. And this high-quality reel is available at a good price.
Anglers using the Offshore Angler Frigate Spinning Reel can expect a smooth performance thanks to the eight stainless-steel ball bearings that are double shielded to keep gunk out.
Another great feature of the Frigate Spinning Reel is the rigid all-aluminum body and side cover, which provides strength and stability so gears stay in line for smoother retrieves. The carbon fiber reinforced rotor is also designed to be super strong to resist torque under a heavy load. Plus, the aluminum spool comes pre-equipped with a braid band to make it easier to tie on braided line.
A specially formulated lubrication called Ocean Silk keeps gears meshing smoothly and promotes a consistently smooth drag. The Teflon and carbon drag system is double sealed to keep out water and debris so you won’t have to tell the story about the one that got away. In addition, a lower gear ratio provides the power you need to land the big fish.
Saltwater fishing gear can take a beating from the elements, however, the Frigate Spinning Reel is built to withstand it. The double anodizing process safeguards the aluminum spool from rust while the Ocean Silk Lubrication protects the gear and drag system from corrosion. Plus, the stainless-steel main shaft adds durability. With proper maintenance, you’ll be fishing with the Frigate Spinning Reel for a long time.
The Offshore Angler Frigate Spinning Rod is the perfect match for the reel. The carbon fiberglass composite provides the right amount of backbone without sacrificing sensitivity. Stainless-steel guides with ceramic inserts help reduce line friction as well as corrosion while the EVA foam handles are slip-resistant.
