The GX300 is an outstanding reel for the money. Manufactured from high quality die cast aluminium and finished in a matt black the reel not only looks good but is also strong, durable and reliable. The reel has an open face and is in a practical large arbour design. The large arbour design allows the angler to retrieve their line in a fast level manner. The reel also features a twin rulon disc drag, which allows the angler to control the line when playing a fish. Another great feature Greys have added to this reel is the tool-less left to right conversion making it easier to change.
To change your spools over there is a captive spool release mechanism that you turn and then the spool is released. The spools are also counter balanced and can fit 70m of WF6 onto the #4/5/6 size and 100m of WF8 onto the #6/7/8 size. The two different sized reels have the same diameter (92mm) and same width (30mm). However the spool depth of the reel is different so the #6/7/8 is 16mm whilst the #4/5/6 is 12mm. This allows the larger size to fit the larger line rating line onto it. As the reel sizes are the same though the spools from both reels can fit on both reels meaning they are interchangeable. With a great reel at a low cost this reel is perfect for anglers looking for quality and reliability at a low price.
