The GTS700 reel is similar to the GTS500 however has certain superior attributes. One of these is its more durable and has a more advanced build. The GTS700 has a strong aluminium frame and features a die cast spool carrier. These two features allow the reel to remain lightweight but also strong, sturdy and long lasting. The large arbour design allows the reel to hold line and plenty of backing as well as increasing the speed at which the line is retrieved. Also the dual rulon drag system gives you smoother and greater control over your line when playing a fish.
Accompanied with the reel are two additional clear polycarbonate spools and a neoprene case to keep the reel and spools in. To change your spools over the reel has a screw, which releases the spools allowing you to change to a different line quick and easy. Also with the reel you receive a set of coloured pegs, which fit onto each spool telling you what type of line is on that spool. The reel comes in two different sizes #5/6/7 or #7/8/9. This allows you to choose the reel that matches your rod. If you have a #7 rod you can then choose whether you want a slightly smaller or larger reel. The GTS700 is a quality reel ideal for trout or salmon rods.
