Alvey 650 GRC

This is an unusual Alvey reel in that it is geared whilst all other models are fixed center pin reels. It has been engineered as a high-speed spinning reel for chasing seriously big fish like a tailor, mackerel, and tuna from the rocks in Australia.

The 650GRC has a gear ratio of 2.5:1 or in other words the spool turns two and a half times for each turn of the reel handle. With a full spool of line that gives an incredible rate of retrieve of some 48 inches or about 1.25m per turn of the handle.

The 650GRC is a very “solid” virtually indestructible surfcasting reel.
