What makes the Banax electric reels so much better than traditional
First of all, they are Electric or Manual so no need to worry about
blown fuses or dead batteries when you have
the big one on. They are much lighter, faster, quieter, smarter, and in
many cases just as strong or stronger.
They also have a line counter, level-wind, and auto-stop features.
These reels make a great day of fishing that
much better. No more hand cranking to check your bait.
the reels Electric or Manual?
reels are electric, manual, or both. They can be strictly electric by
using the Speed Adjustable Accelerator
Lever, strictly manual by using the handcrank, or both by using the
Speed Adjustable Accelerator Lever &
handcrank simultaneously. The handcrank remains stationary in electric
mode unless you choose to turn it.
the Banax have an Auto-Stop feature?
and it's great. This prevents pulling your swivel or kite through the
eye of your rod. Just engage the speed
adjustable accelerator lever and walk away.
power source can I use?
reels are 12V (DC) like most other electric reels. A 12V battery is
your best choice, however we use 12V
(400 amp) portable jump starters and they last an entire day of fishing
with to 2 people using it.
What kind of power cord comes with reels?
The Banax come with 9ft (nine foot) power cords with alligator clips.
