4-Inch 'Sisitul' Fishing Reel - PEETZ Artist Series
Released in December 2016, this new 4" Evolution Reel features an amazing original design by Kwaguilth artist Jason Henry Hunt.
"Sisiutl" (Si’s-E-yu-L) is a radial interpretation of the two-headed sea serpent. Among the many legends of this supernatural being is that it was all powerful, invincible and perhaps more interestingly, a protector. Jason's design shows the Sisiutl holding/caring for salmon eggs - in keeping with our Artist Series theme. A portion of the proceeds of every Artist Series reel is directed to salmon enhancement and habitat restoration programs around the Pacific Northwest.
Mr. Hunt's design has been carefully converted into a digital file and is then laser engraved on the face of the reel prior to final finishing. The results are spectacular. This reel will only look better and better as it ages and the wood develops a patina that can only be created by time on the water.
The 4" PEETZ Evolution Reel is a versatile size equally suited to salt or freshwater trolling. The reel features retro wood style but with modern "guts":
PEETZ unique one-way drag mechanism ensures the Evolution Series of reels are easier than ever to use and virtually eliminates the "knuckle buster" effect!
The introduction of precision roller bearings for better than ever drag control and super-smooth operation.
Updated non-slip drag control design that is larger, stronger and yet easier to adjust to your liking.
A drag control knob that is a nod to the classic PEETZ “wingnut” but offers an updated look and improved feel.
A handle assembly that features through-hull versus face mounted knob attachment.
New solid cherry handles with noticeable ergonomic advantages.
Weight: 17 ounces / 482 grams
