Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard selected the best products that caught his eye during 2016. Here's his lowdown on the DAM Quick Grounder 3000RD Reel ...


DAM have been back in the UK in 2016, and a stand out product for sure is this smooth float and feeder fishing reel comes with a super fast 7.2:1 gear ratio.

So when you need to get ‘in and back out again’ you can retrieve 1.3 metres of line with a single turn of the handle.

It’s available in one size for the likes of pellet waggler and method feeder fishing, with a wide push button spool that takes 125 yards of 8 lb line. It also comes with an aluminium spare.

Helping save valuable time with that speedy retrieve, it’s smooth too – utilising four stainless steel ball bearings and a needle bearing.

Other features including a S-curve oscillation system, micro-adjustable multi disk rear drag and an anti-twist line roller.

It’s light, but reassuringly smooth with a comfortable hard EVA grip on the handle.

Price: £81.00
