Ermes Leonardo Bluewater Reel
The best reel available and a first for underwater fishing, the Leonardo is available in 2 large line capacities: 100 and 150 metres of 1.5mm. These reels are suitable for fishing in the blue to large pelagic species, but are equally versatile for reef fish in deep water.
Currently this is this is the only spearfishing reel with level winding capability. Other reels rely on the winding being controlled by a finger and depends on the skill of the operator driving it well.
With this reel (patent pending) you will have the certainty that the reel will always have the same capacity, in fact, the line will wrap neatly with the coils next to one another, and will also avoid dangerous overlap knots and binding occurring.
This reel allows for a safe, neat and timely retrieval of your reel line, over any other reels. Comes with a built in trigger guard for wood speargun builds, but can be removed if not required.
