About Everol……..

Everol is an Italian company that has been building exquisite, finely machined trolling reels since 1958 when the company started building reels that were up to the task of battling the giant Bluefin tuna of the Mediterranean. Everol’s reels are built with only the best anodized and stainless materials to withstand the rigors of big-game fishing and the insidious salt water environment, but
As a big billfish, tuna, wahoo or GT’s peel line off a reel the laws of physics dictate that even without touching the drag lever the drag has increased due to the progressive reduction in the diameter of line on the spool. With other offshore reels, once line is in the water, it is anyone’s best guess as to what the effective drag setting has become due to this phenomenon (regardless of whether an accurate initial drag setting was taken on a scale). What really sets Everol apart from its competition is the unique and unrivaled Everol drag system; Everol has incorporated this system into their reels for the last 42 years and it has yet to be duplicated.

Everol’s system gives anglers a clear picture of what the effective drag has become allowing anglers to purposefully adjust their drag rather than fiddling with it haphazardly.

Everol’s system works as follows: There are three scales on the side of the reel which correspond to the amount of line on the spool as indicated by notches on the spool itself. The outermost, largest number represents a full spool, the middle, medium-sized number represents a half spool, and the innermost, smallest number represents an almost empty spool. As an example, a 6/0 Everol set with 14 lbs of initial drag, would have an increased drag setting equal to 21 lbs when half spooled. The benefits inherent in this system are clearly evident, but become even more pronounced when fishing light line or when possible records are at stake. As for the drag mechanism itself, Everol incorporates a silky smooth, forced air cooled, multi-disc stainless steel and carbon fiber drag system.

For those who have grown accustomed to a preset drag, Everol has introduced the stellar Waterproof Series. These reels feature an internally sealed disc drag which protects the double sided drag washers from the corrosive salt water environment. These reels are very lightweight yet strong, and, like the Special Series, they too are available in either right or left hand retrieve.

Everol is truly a legendary name in sport fishing and will continue to be for many years to come. Everol definitely delivers on both value and performance and we hope that you will take the time to check out the full line of Everol reels at www.everol.com.au or ask us for a dealer near you.
