The 2015 Black Betty is one of the best shallow water panfish Ice reels available. Its rugged all aluminum construction will last, and the inline design will eliminate line twist dropping small ice jigs. The 2015 Black Betty features a "clicking" drag adjustment, oversized EVA knob for fishing with gloves, and a SmoothCork drag system. Its 1-1 direct drive set-up makes shallow water fishing easy. This years model comes with the new Black Betty Fender for fishing with a "Pencil" or "Pistol" style grip!
