Blitzkrieg – Team Seahawk’s latest machine is an Xtra Hyper Speed (XHSL) low profile casting reel made after the brand’s fishing rod of the same name. The name ‘Blitzkrieg’ is inspired from a German term meaning ‘lightning war’ – an intense military tactic intended to bring about a swiff victory.
The Bliztrieg is the first casting reel of its kind to bost an ultra hyper retrieve ratio of 9.3:1. It is excellent for flippin’ and pitchin’ top water performers such as buzzbaits and crankbaits; a perfect match for anglers who’re seeking for the thrill of teasing and ensnaring Toman, Blackbass and even Giant Trevally using poppers and pencils.
The stylish matt-black and gold-rimmed compact gem is machined with high-quality factory sealed 10+1 stainless steel ball bearings that ensure the machine churns smoothly and cranks easily. The reel’s infinite anti-reverse, one-way clutch bearing and power drive gear provide anglers with complete control during stop and go retrieves.
On tops of that, an ultra wear-resistant level wind (line guide) and remote-torque carbon drag system that dishes out 6kg of max drag pressure team up to deliver a smooth and uninterrupted retrieve. Anglers can put their minds at ease even whilstengaging hard-running fish with the added leverage from the reel’s 100mm swept handle with custom EVA knob.
Designed to fight, the Team Seahawk Blitzkrieg is a mean machine loaded for war and won’t take no for an answer.
