The Accurate Boss Valiant Reels are baitcasting reels. They are designed for inshore and light action offshore applications. These reels are made with innovative design that minimizes size and weight while maximizing strength, longevity and fish fighting power. These reels were built with shallow water jigging in mind, but they can also be used for live-bait coastal fishing, snapper fishing around reefs, jigging for silver salmon, or targeting school-sized tuna, yellowtail and dorado. The unique curvature of the BV-500’s rugged body gives this compact, extremely lightweight reel the structural integrity of models twice its size. Basing the BV-300’s design on the original premise of the Roman Arches or Domes used in early architecture, Accurate has been able to create a significantly stronger reel using less material. While the BV-500’s walls are thinner, its non-flexing frame and side plate enable it to withstand more stress than similarly sized reels. Accurate has also managed to fit the drive train of a bigger reel perfectly into the BV-500’s small profile. These Boss Valiant Reels also incorporate a new Accurate feature – an easy-find “Cam Stop” at strike. Instead of having buttons at free spool and strike, these reels have a secure indent in the Drag Cam that stops the drag lever before going into full. This useful feature offers a fail-safe during the heat of battle, preventing the angler from going too far into full drag. These reels offer performance that’s as close as you can get to a two-speed in a single-speed reel.
