If you want the power to fight tough saltwater fish, it’s time to call in the Rovex Big Boss II spin reels. There are five models in the range—a 5000, 6000,7000, 8000, 9000—and the all new design is constructed with an aluminium body and side plate, a machined aluminium handle and an aluminium spool. The 5000 and 6000 sizes have an extra-heavy-duty polymer rotor and the 7000, 8000 and 9000 sizes have an aluminium rotor. Rovex Big Boss II reels are strong on the inside, too, with six stainless steel ball bearings, a stainless steel main shaft, rock-solid infinite anti-reverse and a powerful-yet-smooth carbon-fibre drag system. The big grip and gutsy gear ratio provide plenty of power and torque for those hard-core battles with saltwater predators, and the braid line capacities ensure you’ve got plenty of line for when the big fish run long. The machined aluminium handle screws directly into the main gear for firm positive power. The aluminium spool has a rubber grip ring for spooling braided line. The time proven alloy main and brass pinion gear pairing have deep-cut teeth for excellent gear contact and strength. The oscillating gear and slide are both alloy with a stainless steel cover plate. The powerful drag system is a seven-stack design with four stainless and three carbon-fibre washers. The drag assembly is protected against water intrusion with a rubber seal under the drag knob, plus fitted in the spool, above the drag washers, is a clever aluminium drag cover plate with an O-ring sealed edge and centre bearing.
