Drennan Vertex Reels in review

As an avid angler, I am always on the lookout for top-quality fishing gear that can enhance my fishing experience. Recently, I had the opportunity to try out the new Drennan Vertex Reels, and I must say, I am thoroughly impressed. These reels have been designed with the angler’s needs in mind, offering options for both float fishing and feeder fishing in two different sizes – 3000 and 4000. With both front drag and rear drag versions available, Drennan has truly catered to the diverse needs of anglers.

One of the standout features of the Drennan Vertex Reels is their ability to eliminate line twist, which can be a significant problem when fishing. Line twist can cause tangles and crack-offs, and can even affect the spin of the feeder. However, extensive testing has shown that Drennan has successfully eliminated line twist in these reels, making for a smooth and hassle-free fishing experience.

The 5.1 gear ratio for line retrieve is another notable feature of these reels. This helps to eliminate line spin on hook lengths during retrieval, ensuring that the line remains tangle-free and the fish remains hooked. As expected from a high-quality reel, the Drennan Vertex Reels come with a one-touch folding handle and a stainless-steel sprung-loaded line clip, making them convenient and easy to use.

The smooth drag system on these reels is perfect for playing fish, ensuring that the fish can be landed without any hiccups. Additionally, the anti-reverse system at the base of the reel is easily accessible during the fish-playing process, providing added convenience.

One of the things that I particularly liked about the Drennan Vertex Reels is the inclusion of a push-button easy release ball on both rear drag versions, which is handy when changing spools. The 4000 feeder reels even come with two spare graphite spools, while the 3000 float size reel comes with one graphite spool. The reels also come with spool identifier buttons, which can be replaced with the poundage or diameter of the line per spool, reducing confusion when using different sizes of lines for different fishing disciplines.

The drag system at the front of the reel provide a satisfying clicking sound when the fish is running, giving me confidence that the reel is performing as it should. The ambidextrous handle allows for versatile use, whether you’re left-handed or right-handed, and adds to the overall convenience of these reels.

Not only do the Drennan Vertex Reels perform exceptionally well on the water, but they also look stylish on the bank. The sleek design and attention to detail make these reels a visually appealing choice for any angler.

In conclusion, the Drennan Vertex Reels are a top-notch choice for anglers looking for reliable, high-performance reels that cater to their specific fishing needs. With features such as line twist elimination, smooth drag system, spool identifier buttons, and ambidextrous handle, these reels offer convenience, durability, and style. Whether you’re into float fishing or feeder fishing, the Drennan Vertex Reels are sure to enhance your fishing experience and become your go-to companion on your fishing adventures. I highly recommend giving them a try!
