Spin Reel Design Features

Cheeky Fishing has nearly a decade of reel design experience. Setting them apart from the competition, all Cheeky Spin Reels feature an incredibly smooth and strong drag, the Duro-Lift Bail System, a fully machined spool, unmatched line capacity and a strong yet lightweight frame and body design capable of taming any elusive beast.

PWR and PWR+ Multi-Disc Drag System: Cheeky’s FLOTR and CYDRO Reels feature a stacked, alternative disc drag system that provides durability, stopping power, friction control, heat dissipation and a smooth startup. The PWR+ system on the CYDRO Reels means increased drag surface area and stopping power for those blistering saltwater runs.

Fully Machined CarbonSpin Spool Design: Specially designed for the CYDRO Series, the CarbonSpin spool is fully machined and plated with carbon fiber for added strength, rigidity and decreased weight.

Duro-Lift Bail System: Reliable bail functionality combined with a superior roller bearing helps avoid tangles and delivers accurate casts with more consistency.

SaltForce Aluminum Frame and Body: Featured on CYDRO Reels for added durability in the salt, the aluminum frame and body protects against saltwater’s harshest environments.

Lightweight: Lighter is better. Cheeky has mastered the concept of lightweight spinning reels without compromising strength.
