Finally when I got around to updating my regular carp reels to something more big pit style I really did my research, looking at all the big pit reels on the market and the Wychwood Exorcist Big Pit reels really did stand out for me for many reasons.
There was many factors I looked for when buying a new reel such how much line you can get on the spool, smoothness, ease of reeling action and of course price. The Wychwood Exorcist reel comes available sizes the 65 holds 290m of 18lb line or the 75 holds 320m of 18lb line. Your thinking the reel must weigh a lot heavier with larger line capability but your wrong, the Wychwood Exorcist Big Pit are very light weight which makes casting a joy.
Some of the features of the reel are 12 ball bearings and an oversized main shaft, which in english means the reel is very easy to use, smooth and so far I’ve had no issues with the reel’s core mechanism. The reel has very large spool, by having a large spool the faster the line can leave your reel, so in theory this will allows you to cast further and with ease.
The first time I used these reels are really noticed the difference, casting long distances and reeling back in was a real joy. Other features on this reel include a very well designed line clip that makes clipping the line to the spool easy and hassle free, once you have finished your fishing session.
The Biggest Factor For These Reels
I would say one of the biggest factors when looking to buy new reels is price and these reel’s by Wychwood gave me personally all the features I needed for large waters at a very good price compared to the others reels on the market. You can get these reels for just under 70 pounds which compared to reels by companies such as Diawa which can set you back a couple of hundred pounds, these reels are a great bargain.
In conclusion these reels by Wychwood are top quality, great for casting long distances and you buy them for a very good price. You can buy the Exorcist Big Pit reels from all good tackle shops or you can simply find them from amazon like I did.
