The boys up in the Northeastern United States do battle with a lot of big striped bass and tunas, so their gear has to be tough enough to withstand the harsh conditions of the North Atlantic. Based in New York, Atlas Reels makes both spinning and lever-drag reels.

The Kona Series 400 is a single-speed saltwater fishing reel that offers more power for the serious, competitive inshore angler. Weighing only 19.5 ounces, this reel can give you 26 pounds of max drag — perfect for doing battle with even the largest of inshore species and most tunas and white marlin you’ll encounter. The Kona boasts a 5.8:1 gear ratio and holds 360 yards of 20-pound line.

On the spin side, the Monterey 5000 makes a perfect offshore spinning reel, great for jigging or popping. Weighing in at 32.8 ounces, the Monterey 5000 provides up to 44 pounds of drag — far more than you could ever hold — and takes in 55 inches of line per crank!
