What makes it special:  “Made for the Canadian market alone, these reels and rods can be found online for over $300 USD each.

Rapala Seeker Spinning Reel 

  • 5.0:1 gear ratio
  • 8 ball bearings
  • Graphite Body
  • Precision gears
  • Instant anti-reverse
  • Oversized spool
  • Size 2500
You have to try this reel to believe it. Featuring over sized spools, the larger spool design offers larger line capacities, lower line memory, and increased casting distances. The larger spools also allows use of heavier monofilaments than the average spinning reel of the same size. A wider spool also allows the use of a larger drag washer, creating a stronger drag that distributes heat much better.


What makes it special:  “This smooth 8 ball bearing reel is a delight to cast with.  The oversized spool allows for more line and less line twist and memory.  A perfect choice for both finesse fishing or for horsing in the big fish.  The drag system is one of our favorites.”

These are priced and available online for $99.99 and above, but Dr. Bob’s has you covered.  They’re in stock and ON SALE NOW for $59.99 !!  Pair it with one of our rods and pay just $50.00! Get yours before they’re gone!
