These reels were the first to feature the now time proven rotor and caliper disc drag system utilizing oil impregnated cork calipers, and a floating rotor disc for an ultra smooth drag, as is currently used in the Deluxe II version. Drag adjustments are set via lever control with 9-detent settings. Additionally the reel has a preset gear & pawl drag for controlling spool overrun when light disc drag settings are made.

Deluxe design disc drag reels have been in service since 1990 world wide, performing trouble free on steelhead rivers of the Pacific Northwest to Atlantic salmon rivers in eastern Canada, Iceland, Russia and Norway.

56890SEAMASTER SALT WATER REELS.....

For 66 years reels originated by Capt. Bob McChristian Jr.  have been regarded among the finest ever built. There had been a steady evolution of reel models developed over that time, each building on the success and genius of the ones before. Seamaster routinely combines top-of-the-line performance with hand-crafted design. An apex was clearly reached when Seamaster introduced the most recent of that long evolutionary line, epitomized in the Dual-Mode Series of reels.  These reels are unsurpassed in stubborn reliability and function with the very best features of modern Big Game reels.

To Wit:  With Blackstone coated spools, hand-polished parts, and a double hard-coat anodize finish, Seamaster reels are about more than just functionality – they are also about beauty. The anodizing process used produces a hardness of finish at 9 MOH. (Diamond is a 10). Guarantees your reel will look great even after years of hard service in the brutal Salt Water environment. Each reel uses double-sealed ball bearings, have an anodized finish that rates a 9 on the Moh scale (diamonds are a 10) and feature a large cork drag with no breakaway torque, for absolute fish control, one of the finest ever.

But the true value of these reels is in how they function.  On the retrieve, special internal cams engage the spool directly allowing hand controlled pressure with out spool slip common to Anti-reverse reels. OK, so you really do want the advantage of the best anti-reverse reels that eliminate a wildly spinning handle on a hot fish? No Problem. A release of the handle knob allows the reel to disengage the internal cams, the spool spins at where your drag it set for control and the handle remains stationary. After the run, you just start reeling again and you are in total control during the fight. Genius!? You bet.

This line of reels are not currently being produced, so the ones that are available on the secondary market take on special meaning to collectors as well as serious salt water fans.  We are proud to offer here a great selection of the best of these magnificent reels at very affordable prices, much below their true collector's market cost. DO NOT pass this up.

A bit of icing on this cake comes in the form of the only currently produced Seamaster, a direct-drive Mark 1 (Baby Doll) Seamaster. Designed for Bonefish, light Salt and Salmon/ Steelhead use and boasting all the best Seamaster hand crafting, available in here and priced at $1500.00. Get yours today.
