Fin-Nor’s Marquesa range has been designed for anglers who want an overhead lever drag reel for jigging, casting, trolling or bottom fishing. 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 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.
All models have a quick 6.1:1 gear ratio and a big ergonomic handle so you can crank them fast. Fin-Nor’s Marquesa reels won the Best Reel category at last year’s Australian Fishing Trade Association Awards.
