Broadly the FREEDEX operates as other reels built on the ‘Nottingham’ principle. To control when casting use the index finger on the line drum face, or the regulator, or both. The handles remain stationary when the cast is made - disengagement and engagement being entirely automatic. This innovation eliminates revolving handles when the cast is made, adding to the length of the cast and reducing effort and tendency to over-run.
The release lever at the front enables the winding unit to be removed complete - no small parts to lose; the line drum can then be removed from the frame for cleaning and oiling. Both line drum and winding unit can be replaced equally simply.
All details have been carefully studied by Salmon Angling experts who consider the FREEDEX dimensionally perfect and a first class production.
