Best Accurate Fishing Reel Reviews

Accurate Fishing touts itself as the “Home of the Best Saltwater Fishing Reels” and if you are a west coast fisherman who likes to tackle offshore species, your paths have probably crossed.

The company was founded in 1990 and in 1997 they introduced the patented TwinDrag system fishing reels.  Accurate is known by serious fishermen to produce some of the strongest and lightest weight fishing reels on the market today.

They primarily have a focus on the conventional reel market and are probably most well known for the Accurate Valiant BV-300 and Accurate Valiant BV-400 series of reels.

These are very lightweight starting at under 10 oz. and can easily handle fish up to 50 lbs.
