The Aerlex range of reels are tough customers one and all, and the XTB is no different. Each one features Shimano’s Instant Drag mechanism, which gives them the power for some serious heavy lifting. Whether it’s Carp-fishing or surf-fishing, the Aerlex won’t give up without a fight. The ARC spool and 2-Speed Oscillation features further improve its performance, making sure you can cast as far as possible with as much ease as possible.
The Aerlex is designed and equipped to deal with heavy leads, with a 4,6:1 retrieve torque ratio. The XTBSP is even more powerful, sporting a 5,3:1 ratio, making your retrieval swift and efficient to maximise your time actively fishing. With an Aerlex fishing reel in your hands, the fish don’t stand a chance.
Fishing Republic dates back to 1985 when the company’s founder and Executive Director, Steve Gross, established a business selling fishing flies and fly tying materials to fishing tackle wholesalers. In 2005, Fishing Republic opened our first store in Barnsley. Since then the company has grown to be the Largest Fishing Tackle retailer in the UK.
With the extensive angling knowledge within our company and the exceptional customer service we offer both in store and online, it’s clear to see why Fishing Republic is Number 1.
