Rapala Rage Baitcasting Reel

Rapala has finally launched its long awaited Rage 'Custom Tuned' baitcaster RG100SR / RG100SL. 

Rigid Drive Train - for efficient transmission of power when cranking
Centrifugal Braking System
Low startup inertia spool (weighing 16g)
Ergonomic EVA knobs
Indexing star drag

Gear ratio: 6.5:1
Max drag: 9lb
Weight: 188g
Bearings: 6/1
Max retrieve per turn: 65cm
Line Capacity: 0.20/200m / 0.24/130m / 0.28/90m 

With a rather lightweight spool, the Rage is versatile enough to pitch light lures with or punch out large crankbaits. The best part - it's saltwater OK!

With a MSRP of only RM299.00, the Rage is quite a baitcast reel to be reckoned with given its relatively low price point. Available in Left or Right hand retrieve.
