The Shimano Charter Special Lever Drag Reels are excellent reels for beginners and experienced anglers alike due to their reliability, ease of use, and overall features offered. These reels are constructed with an aluminum spool, reinforced graphite frame and graphite side plates, making these reels light weight, solid, durable, and corrosion resistant.

The Shimano Charter Special Lever Drag Reels sport a counter balanced handle that reduces wobble during high speed cranking and a handle knob that is large enough to hold on to when reeling in larger fish. These high performance reels have over-sized gears that enhance their power, allowing them to handle any size fish with ease.

The Shimano Charter Special Lever Drag Reels feature an easy to operate and dependable lever drag system that can be adjusted quickly with the flip of a lever. If you hook a fish that is larger than expected and need to adjust the drag quickly, you can simply press a small button in front of the lever to increase the drag pressure. Then to reduce the drag pressure back to the original setting you just flip the lever back to its original position.

If you are looking for price effective level wind reels that will take a beating and are packed with features, then the Shimano Charter Special Lever Drag Reels are the choice for you.

Great value!

I use both these reels trolling for striper with live bait. I love the lever drag system as it makes on the fly adjustments while fighting fish much easier. Also, the handle gives a very positive grip even when wearing thick winter gloves. The value of these reels is also unbeatable. I currently own 2 of both sizes with plans on buying 4 more. If you are looking for a lever drag level wind that doesn't break the bank, look no further. The only down size is they are a bit bulky, but for trolling I don't mind.
