13 Fishing Concept A Casting Reel

Known for their technically sound, high quality rods, 13 Fishing has made quite the entrance into the fishing market. Already one of the most popular fishing rod manufacturers, 13 Fishing introduces their latest creations, the Concept Casting Reels. Exhibiting a sleek, streamlined design the Concept A Reel is the introductory level casting reel from 13 Fishing. Constructed using aluminum frame and sideplates, the Concept A is an incredibly durable, yet lightweight reel which possesses a very low profile - meaning it sits quite low on the rod enabling easier palming and a more comfortable application. The engineers at 13 Fishing placed a great deal of emphasis on this aspect of the reel's design. They found many reels to simply be uncomfortable and ultimately deprived anglers of the control they should be afforded by today's available reel technology. The first thing you'll notice about all of the Concept A Reel, and all of the concept series models, is just how comfortable they are to fish with and how much difference the small details make.

Comfort and design are key ingredients of the Concept A Reels, but not the only elements worth mentioning. Technically speaking, these reels are quite sound. Weighing in at just 6.7oz, the reel is among the lightest reels on the market - coming in a hair heavier than the premium Abu Garcia models. The reel possesses an effortlessly smooth feel which can be largely attributed to the use of 7 premium ball bearings (3 anti-corrosion + 3 stainless steel + 1 A/R clutch) and the use of their proprietary Arrowhead line guide that reduces friction as line peels off during the cast. Strength is not an issue as the Concept A is equipped with a 22lb Bulldog drag system which will prove worthy against any beast and won't be compromised as the years of use add up. Casting control is another important consideration to be made when selecting your reel and 13 Fishing doesn't disappoint with the Concept A's 6 way centrifugal braking system.

Of course, in today's reel market the vast array of choices means many of the reels set themselves apart with their aesthetics. 13 Fishing's Concept A is one of the more unique options in that regard. First and foremost, the reel's matte or primer finish is really simple, but cool. It's not the in your face yellow and black - instead, it's kind of the below the radar look. The sideplate opposite the handle displays the name of the reel, in this case Concept A, printed near the spool opening. The reel handles were selected for both functionality and appearance. You'll notice it's very minimal in design for reduced weight, but also keeps consistent with the feel of the 13 Fishing brand. Finally, the most eye-catching component; the cork knobs. They are lightweight and strong, very durable and feel nice on the hand. They are embellished with a sublimated 13 Fishing logo on each knob.

5 of 5 close to perfect March 1, 2015
Reviewer: Chubby Chaser from delta CA  
I love these reels. the size of the body is great to palm, and the handle & knobs feel great aswell.  they cast a mile with vary good cast control and the drag is a true bulldog.  i use the reels on everything from 3/8 oz jigs in 45' of water to punching, froggin, chatterbaits. It preforms better then any other reel i have used. I just sold all my E7 to buy more of these.

5 of 5 Curado killer! April 13, 2014
Reviewer: Cody from Coeur d'Alene, ID United States  
This is the real deal, I like it alot better than my new curado. Can't wait to get the "c" model next. These are super light, ultra smooth, and overall sick!! I love the big cork grips, some dont, only downfall is line capacity.
