It has been a pleasure experimenting with the new Extricator 5000FD these past few weeks, I’ve had it paired with the old Extricator 12ft Floater and the weather has been ideal for surface fishing. That’s not to suggest the reel is limited to just surface fishing, this baby pit is more than a match for many adventures including stalking, canal and river fishing, or even the vast majority of small waters. Its compact design, large spool and clinical line lay make it the perfect reel to pair with any six, nine or ten foot rods. The clean, stated, retro look with a matte black magnesium body, chrome coloured spool and dark wooden handle are sure to make it an attractive option for a lot of anglers. The micro-pitch multi-disc drag ensures a smooth performance, and requires just one complete turn to take it from a free spool to locked up. The spec and overall feel of this reel certainly exceeds its £79.99 retail price.
