There have been some significant changes in the type of reels used for shark fishing in recent times. This has reflected the improvements in both the quality of the reels themselves and more particularly the types of line we can use.
Hollow-core braid loaded on to a reel with a top-shot of nylon monofilament allows smaller reels to be used for large powerful fish with confidence. Also the reels braking systems have been much improved by the use of technologically advanced materials on friction surfaces.
Drags are smoother and more powerful. This applies to both multipliers and fixed spools.
