Inspired by cave exploration in the 1980’s the Dive Rite Side winder Primary reel combines a low profile design with an easy to use configuration. By placing the handle on the side, the Sidewinder reel makes switching hands easy while laying line.
Dive Rite Sidewinder reels are designed to be anti-jam using precision machine tolerances between the frame and spool, making it nearly impossible for the line to slip between the spool and the handle. The frame is constructed of aircraft grade hardcoated aluminum, providing extra protection against corrosion. Updated to be compatible with Dive Rite’s exclusive QRM system, the Sidewinder series of reels include mounting holes in the frame for the QRM striker (sold separately). Available in a #24 thickness line (400 ft) or #36 thickness line (250 ft), Dive Rite reels use DuPont fiber braided line that provides strength and minimizes fraying. Includes marine grade stainless steel double end bolt snap.
