5-Inch 'Orca Pod' Evolution Fishing Reel - PEETZ Artist Series
As an extension of our popular Artist Series initiative, we are proud to introduce "Orca Pod", a PEETZ 5" Evolution fishing reel that has been engraved with an original design by renowned Kwaguilth artist Jason Henry Hunt.
"Orca Pod" depicts a radial pattern of six overlapping Orca dorsal fins, and continues our 2016 Artist Series theme of the "Chain of Life" - meant to raise awareness of the importance of healthy salmon stocks to the survival of the majestic West Coast species that rely on them. As with all of our Artist Series fishing reels, a portion of the purchase price of every "Orca Pod" reel is donated to salmon conservation and habitat restoration projects via the Pacific Salmon Foundation.
"Orca Pod" is engraved on the popular PEETZ 5" Evolution model of reel featuring a one-way drag mechanism. Not only does the reel look incredible, but it offers smooth roller bearing operation, modern functionality and outstanding performance.
The PEETZ Evolution Reel
Released in 2015, the Evolution fishing reel represents the first major innovation in reel design for PEETZ Outdoors in more than a decade!
We make a conscious effort to stay true to the PEETZ classic wood look, sound, and more importantly, feel! Working closely with a number of professional west coast fisherman, we’ve introduced technical and functional enhancements to boost the performance of the PEETZ classic reel and bring it into the 21st century.
New one-way drag mechanism (no more "knuckle buster" effect!).
Precision stainless steel center shaft and roller bearings.
New drag control knob that is a nod to the classic PEETZ "wing nut" but offers an updated look and improved feel.
Updated non-slip drag control.
Handcrafted from sustainably farmed mahogany - stained and sealed with PEETZ custom sealer and two coats of quality matte varnish for decades of protection from the elements.
Hand turned and polished brass components including a beautiful lathe-shaped brass line spool.
New solid Cherry wood handles with clean, through-hull attachment.
The distinctive resonating sound of the PEETZ clicker with on/off button.
Created by Canadian artisans.
A lifetime warranty.
