Anyway sturdy and high gear

One of the big features of the Big Shooter Compact is the large diameter Brass Dura Gear II. Brass Dura Gear II provides high strength and winding speed. In addition, the Big Shooter Compact is a reel with an emphasis on robustness and power, including titanium-coated aluminum side plates and 4mm thick handle arms.

Sufficient thread winding capacity makes it ideal for targeting big fish.

Although the Big Shooter Compact is called a compact, it is also characterized by the ability to wrap a large amount of thread. The capacity to wrap around 100m even with a thick 25lb line is perfect for targeting big fish. Another appeal of the Big Shooter Compact is that you can fight with big game with peace of mind.

Big Shooter Compact reputation/impressions

Big Shooter Compact has been reviewed on many mail order sites and blogs, and it can be said that the reviews are very high. In addition to big bass and large rockfish, it is often used for fishing for monster fish overseas, and its power and robustness are highly praised.

On the other hand, one of the disadvantages that is often cited is the weight. The weight of the Big Shooter Compact is 239g, which is one of the heavier among low profile reels. However, for example, Shimano's Calcutta Conquest, which is in the 200 class, has the same weight as the Big Shooter Compact, so you often get used to it as you use it.


Big shooter compact customization

Custom parts for the Big Shooter Compact are also available from reel parts manufacturers. In terms of specs, rather than internal customization such as bearings, there are plenty of custom design parts such as star drags and handles. It might be fun to arrange it into your own original big shooter compact.
