The Evolution Series represents the first major innovation in reel design for PEETZ Outdoors in more than a decade!
There are so many wonderful advantages to a wood reel that we made a conscious effort to stay true to the PEETZ classic wood look, sound, and more importantly, feel! However, working closely with a number of professional West Coast fisherman, we've introduced technical and functional enhancements to boost the performance of the PEETZ classic reel and bring it into the 21st century.
- Entirely new, our unique one-way drag mechanism ensures the evolution series of reels are easier than ever to use and virtually eliminates the "knuckle buster" effect!
- The introduction of precision roller bearings for better than ever drag control and super smooth operation.
- Updated non-slip drag control design that is larger, stronger and yet easier to adjust to your liking.
- New drag control knob that is a nod to the classic PEETZ “wing nut” but offers an updated look and improved feel.
- Newly designed handle assembly that features through-hull versus face mounted knob attachment.
- New solid cherry handles with noticeable ergonomic advantages.
- A lighter reel overall versus the PEETZ classic series.
- New optional free artwork featuring "Stryke", the PEETZ mascot (he may look a bit angry but we love him anyway and he brings good luck).
- Handcrafted mahogany - sealed and stained with PEETZ custom sealer and two coats of quality marine spar varnish for decades of protection from the elements.
- Hand turned and polished brass components including a beautiful lathe-shaped brass line spool.
- The distinctive sound of the PEETZ clicker ("fish on!") with on/off button.
- The PEETZ lifetime guarantee.
