Accurate Boss Dauntless DX2 Reels
The Boss Dauntless, DX2, was designed to follow in the steps of its popular predecessor, the BX2 Boss Extreme. Accurate introduced these reels at the 2013 ICAST and they have been an incredibly popular reel at our retail location. Basically, every component used in these reels is perfect. Twin synced dogs for increased stopping power, and a backup ARB bearing for piece of mind. The Boss Dauntless is designed for everyday fishing needs from trolling for pelagic species to tangling with denizens of the deep. It is offered in 400, 500, and 600 sizes and works excellent with today’s super braids. If you are looking for the next best thing, definitely check out the Dauntless. It’s the complete package. Many of our customers express the nicer machining of these reels compared to their other models of Accurate reels - cosmetically speaking, Accurate took their sleek lines, and detailed machining to a whole new level from the DX2 series.
Accurate held nothing back when creating their newest offering, the Dauntless series of reels. Constructed from premium materials including 6061-T6 Aircraft Aluminum, 17-4 heat treated stainless steel gears and a larger 17-4 heat treated gear shaft which results in increased strength and unparalleled torque. Drag settings are extremely precise as each reel is calibrated by Accurate themselves. Accurate fans will notice the Dauntless reels feature a longer power arm and ergonomic handle - these two components offer incredible power, yet the feel is very comfortable. Incorporating Accurate's 2-speed shift mechanism allows for solid engagement through the fight. Equally effective for jigging or casting light live baits with the freespool technique. The free spool is really something worth seeing - so smooth. If you're an experienced angler, specifically well versed in the Accurate products, you'll be able to cast a mile with these reels.

The 2-speed models of reels are designed to fight fish that tend to dive deep straight under the boat during the battle. The higher speed gear ratio is perfect for gaining line on fish as they make their runs. The benefits of the 2-speed are most evident when fighting big game fish that fight deep and make long, vertical runs. Anglers will use the higher speed reel to catch up to the fish and then switch over to the lower speed to power up against fish when bringing it in.
