A reliable primary reel is a necessity whether you’re discovering a virgin cave or exploring a deep shipwreck. Not only must your reel be dependable, it also must be robust and easy to deploy. Our new 200ft and 400ft primary reels combine simplicity with durability so you can get on with your deepest explorations without any worries about performance. The handles on both sizes are machined with 6061-T6 hard anodized aluminum to prevent cracking or breaking. They feature rugged high-tensile Delrin® spools that will never warp when fully loaded with line; ultra bright, hi-viz #24 orange line is easily noticed in all low light, and a main bolt design retains the spool and hardware to keep all the components intact.
Hollis’ new Primary Reels are designed to be the best performing primary dive reels available.
RUGGED AND SIMPLE SPOOL DESIGN
It’s amazing how rugged this new reel is while maintaining the simplicity you need in caves and wrecks. It is machined with high-tensile Delrin® to ensure abrasion resistance, extra durability and to eliminate warping. A convenient winding knob provides easy and comfortable grip with your gloves on, and a simple one-piece stainless-steel hub is controlled by a stainless-steel lockdown screw. All parts are engineered with the strictest tolerances to eliminate line traps or failures when spooling.
HANDLE WITH EASE
Handles need to withstand getting stepped on and dropped. The Primary Reel is machined with 6061-T6 hard anodized aluminum to prevent cracking or breaking, and is sized for effortless handling while wearing either warm or cold water dry gloves. You can easily and comfortably switch hands when laying your line or reeling up with its side handle that’s designed for left- or right-hand operation.
ULTRA BRIGHT HIGH-VIZ ORANGE LINE
White line is difficult to see in open water, but our premium ultra bright high-viz #24 orange nylon line is braided for high visibility in all conditions, and is high-tensile to resists twisting or kinking. Its bright orange color will remain vibrant over time, unlike the washout effect found in other lines.
