Maxel Reels

A name that has become synonymous with premium quality, high tech reels, Maxel continuously delivers when it comes to meeting expectations. Maxel’s expansive range of reels spans from ultra-lightweight jigging and casting, up to heavyweight trolling models, with all reels being backed by Maxel’s famous five-year warranty.

2 Speed Gearing

Two sets of stainless steel main and pinion gears allow you the option of a high-speed or power ratio for maximum torque. Maxel’s shifting system is designed to operate in a simple and reliable way – just push the shift button and handle in for low gear, offering you the power to fight big game fish, or push the button and pull the handle out so as to switch back to high-speed ratio for quick line recovery.

Preset Drag Lever

Maxel’s preset knob and drag levers are designed for precise and constant drag settings between FREE, to STRIKE, to FULL. Turn the preset knob clockwise for more drag pressure, and counter-clockwise for less drag pressure.

Ergonomic Power Knob

Maxel’s ergonomically shaped power knob provides maximum power with minimum fatigue for the game angler. The power knob takes full advantage of the natural dynamics of the human hand, wrist, and forearm to help sustain power and endurance.

Machined Rigid Frame

Aircraft-grade aluminium construction for superior strength. All Maxel reels feature a strong, rigid, one-piece fully machined aluminium frame. These monolithic bar-stock frames not only keep the moving parts in precise alignment but also maintain exact control under heavy loads while fighting big fish.

Anti-corrosion stainless steel bearings

Maxel uses top-quality shielded stainless steel ball bearings to provide superior corrosion resistance and smooth operation on line release and recovery.

Heavy-Duty Precision Gears

Each Maxel reel is constructed around a high modulus, heat-treated, heavy-duty stainless steel gearset for superior strength, smoothness and durability.

Carbon Drag System

Maxel’s unique carbon drag system delivers wide range and smooth operation at all settings. The contaminant-resistant carbon surfaces are treated with a precise amount of specially formulated Maxel drag grease that resists water absorption and maintains powerful drag settings. Constant, steady friction and excellent heat displacement are assured through the drag surface design.

Magnetic Cast Assist

Magnetic Cast Assist uses magnetism to reduce backlash and improve casting distance. The magnetic piece exerts an opposing force and assists with accurate adjustments. This feature is available on Maxel light jigging reel models.

Cold-Forged Spool & Sideplates

Featuring the latest in cold-forging technology, the super-strong, cold-forged aluminium spool and side plates stand up to line pressure and hard fighting stresses.
