VIDEO TECH REVIEW: Rovex Big Boss II

RRP from $129

The next generation Rovex Big Boss II spin reel can be summed up in one word: tough. Built to battle saltwater predators, this affordable reel has been constructed to extra heavy duty standards inside and out. Available in seven sizes – from 3000 to 9000 – the reel’s smooth operation is complemented by a gear ratio that delivers plenty of torque, while the powerful and smooth carbon-fibre drag system can turn the heads of hard-fighting inshore and offshore species.
