Fin-Nor's Marquesa range has redefined what an overhead lever-drag reel can be for anglers who jig, cast, troll or bottom fish offshore. For example, the tiny MA12, about the size of a baitcaster, holds 248m of 50lb braid, retrieves 109cm per turn of the handle and its carbon-fibre drag is capable of 6kg at strike and cranks more than 10kg at full drag! The MA30T is the biggest in the range; it holds 612m of 50lb braid, retrieves up to 130cm per turn of the handle, has a strike drag capability of more than 7kg and a maximum drag of 18kg. All six reels in the range are examples of precision engineering. The bodies are made of the finest 6061-T6 aircraft-grade aluminium, forged then machined. The MA12, 16, 20 and 30 have an open top design; the MA20T and 30T have a machined top bar and an adjustable ratchet clicker, so you can adjust the tension at free spool. That’s a great feature. All models have a quick 6.1:1 gear ratio and a big ergonomic handle so you can crank them fast.
