HT Enterprises Accucast Ultralight Spinning Reel

The HT Enterprises Accucast Ultralight Spinning Reels are perfect for ice fishing with features such as an extended reel foot for easier use with the sliding rings found on some ice rod handles, longer necks to leave room for use with gloves or mittens, and an increased angle which puts the spool in line with the guides of shorter ice rods.
- Specially designed for 1 - 4 lbs. test line
- Extra long neck allows for gloved use
- Soft rubber paddle for a sure grip

good ice reel for the money
I bought an ACR 102 to replace a very used and abused South Bend celsius reel. I do not believe lower cost means unuseable. I have only used this reel twice, but my initial impression is one of being satisfied, it feels quite smooth for a 2 bearing model and stayed smooth even in -18f weather. I really like the tipped spool design, the drag is smooth and consistent and I have had no problem bringing in 12-14 inch kokanee and 14-18 inch Rainbow on it. The only thing that concerns me is that the spool clicker is a sliver of plastic rather than spring loaded metal, but as of yet it has not failed.
Angle of reel is genius!!

Put this together with a short 18" rod. Really a good match, angle of reel lets line go out and in very nicely. I don't know what its called, but the bail doesn't go backwards at all when clicked on. This is really handy for one-handed fishing and a great feature.

For under $20 this is an impressive reel.
Solid real better service
I had one of these reals held up to a lot of big fish then it broke... however fish USA provided great customer service and shipped it to me for free... the new real is excellent can't come up with a single complaint... I would buy it again and highly reccomend it
Nice reel for ice fishing

Very smooth drag no problem handling #2 test. Is not stiff it cold weather. Would definitely recommend it.

Got the 5bb and 6bb models. Both have smooth drags and are reliable. More than I can say for a lot of more expensive reels I've purchased to use on the ice.

Bought the 6 BB version for my girlfriend to put on her medium power jigging setup for trout. She loves it. Very smooth drag, and a comfortable reel. Would certainly advise- especially for the price tag. I think it would be hard to beat.

This is a good smooth little reel. I had one loaded with 2 pound test while perch fishing last week. Hooked a 6 pound northern under 2 feet of ice. Every time I would get him to the hole he would take off again. This happened 4 or 5 times. I was mighty glad to have a reel with a good smooth drag. I expect this quality drag on my expensive reels but I was happily surprised with how well this inexpensive reel performed when pushed beyond its normal range of use.

I have 5 ARC-106AC reels and 5 HT 36ich LT rods on the back of my ice fishing sled at all times love them
Outstanding value in a purpose-built ice fishing reel
by desmobob -
I don't think you can find a better ice fishing reel for the price -- or maybe twice the price. The long, angled stem points the reel face at the first guide of a typically short ice rod and allows plenty of room for gloved or mittened hands. The power train and drag are plenty smooth. I have five or six of these reels now and the only thing I wish that would change is that HT would offer a slightly larger version.
Great Ice Reel!

Works like an ice reel should. Used it at 5 degrees, stayed smooth, no internal freeze ups. Really like the longer shank on the reel, gives more room for gloves without interfering with the bail. Will be buying another.
A must buy

bought a pair of ACr-106A (6BB) to go on some icy blue super flex rods. really happy with the combo. reels are smooth, drag is great, mostly use for panfish perch, gills, crappie through the ice. i give it 4.5 stars only cause i got it towards the end of the season and havent really put it to the abuse yet. great price too.

This reel is a great buy. You won't find another reel that works as well as this in this price range.
Trout Fishing with Ice Fishing Rods
by OldGuy -
Recreational fishing for trout and bass most of the time. Use with 6 lbs test and worms or eggs. The spool is heavy plastic and need some sandpaper to smooth out the mold lines for better casting. Great fun for catching smaller fish..
Excellent reel for ice fishing
by BackWoods Sportsman -
This is a great ultra lite reel for ice fishing or vertical fishing out of a boat. Smooth operation and the anti reverse is very good. Light weight and drag system performs flawlessly.

These reels are a great value .
by jimbo -
They are well built reels that do the job that higher price reels do, but half the cost.
by Laker Taker -
This reel is awesome. With 6bbl and instant anti reverse.....how can you go wrong with the price? It is really smooth and the drag is really good. Better then spending 50-100 dollars on a "name brand" reel.
Put it on the ice blue rod perfect match
by Patr -
Would buy another
Knocked this one out of the park!!!
by Heavy duty -
The guys at HT designed a reel that does not bounce when retreving your catch,The angeled up feature lines up with the first eye on your rod,alowing the line to evenly load on to the spool eliminating bounce.Think about it!!! bouncing lines - loose fish.
