Product Description

The newly launched Transformer F30 from MAXEL is one of the smallest reels on the market. Weighing just 400 gr, the competitively priced jigging reel boasts high quality workmanship and a new feature – magnetic cast assist – to minimise unwanted ‘bird’s nests.

Despite being compact and ultra-light, it is a tough reel that has a maximum drag of 20 kg and can accommodate 30 lb / 400 m of PE braided line. It is made of 9+2RB and has a double locking system for minimum spool backlash. MAXEL unique carbon drag system delivers smooth drag performance even when it is wet. It comes at power ratio 5.3:1 (line retrieve per crank is 82 cm) and high speed ratio 6.2:1 (line retrieve per crank is 96cm).

MAXEL has followed up the successful release of the F30 with the F40 and F50. They boast the same features and are designed with a gear ratio of 5.0:1 (line retrieve per crank 85 cm) and high speed ratio 5.8:1 (line retrieve per crank is 98cm).. With a line capacity of 40 lb / 400 m and 50 lb / 400 m respectively, they have a powerful maximum drag of 22 kg. All the reels come with a newly designed high leverage handle and ultra-light knobs.

The F30, F40 and F50 is fitted with either a round aluminium power knob and coated EVA, EVA Oval Handle or Carbon T bar . They are available as right or left-hand models and come in eye-catching colours. There is also a silent anti-reverse option. Innovation and design have always been at the heart of MAXEL products and that is particularly true when it comes to our Transformer new jigging reels.
