The high-capacity Emcast Sport reels offer an exceptional value for saltwater surf, jetty, pier or boat use. It has an eight ball-bearing and one roller-bearing drivetrain for a smooth retrieve and solid hookset. The roller bearing works with the infinite anti-reverse to land even the lightest-biting fish. Twist Buster line twist reduction and Gyro Spin balancing reduces rotor wobble and tangles by laying the line on the reel neatly. Zero-friction main shaft design increases the smoothness of the reel. ABS reverse taper aluminum spool also reduces casting friction. An excellent choice for big cats, sturgeon, paddlefish as well as other heavy freshwater fish. The 5500 has a line capacity of 230 yards of 25-lb. test with a 4.6:1 gear ratio. It weighs 26.8 oz.

Features include oversized aluminum oxide guides, graphite reel seats and comfortable split foam grips that help to reduce the overall weight of the rod. Each action is precisely tuned for launching baits over great distances.
