The Mitchell Avocet Match RZ4000 FD comes under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.

THE Mitchell Avocet Match RZ4000 is a tidy little reel package, on its way from Pure Fishing.

Out this autumn, it’s a robust feeder reel, set to handle bagging on commercials, as well as rivers.

The aluminium spool takes 150 m of 0.18 mm line, and it comes with double line clips, allowing you more options to clip up and get back on the same spots.

Retrieving 96 cm of line per handle turn and coming with a multi-disk front drag and one-touch quick-folding handle, it also comes with three spare, aluminium spools in a zip-up reel case.

Price: £74.99.
