Pinnacle Deadbolt Slyder

Pinnacle's new Deadbolt® Slyder' baitcaster offers anglers the advantages of an innovative "Finesse Wheel" for tempting finicky bass, the smoothness of ten double-shielded stainless steel bearings, and the blazing speed of a 7.0:1 gear ratio.

By combining the ultimate tools for both finesse applications and high-speed "power fishing" situations, this sleek, stylish ultra-smooth performer delivers the best of both worlds.

Pinnacle's built-in Finesse Wheel lets you work a plastic worm, tube or creature bait along the bottom in exacting increments with just one hand. It's ideal for creating the kind of slow, tantalizing presentation even sluggish bass can't resist. The Deadbolt Slyder's Finesse wheel operates like a "scrolling wheel" on a computer mouse. Pushing the wheel slowly with your thumb slides a lure enticingly around or over bottom structure. Faster pushes of the wheel allow you to pick up slack line in a flash.

When the fish are in the mood for a speedier offering, the Pinnacle Deadbolt Slyder puts a 7.0:1 gear ratio at your fingertips. You can use this ultra-fast retrieve option to rip high speed lures back to the boat, cover water in a hurry, and quickly locate the most productive areas.

In addition to being an extremely versatile fishing tool, the Deadbolt Slyder is also smooth, solid and durable. Its ten stainless steel ball bearings (9 ball bearings plus a roller bearing) are double-shielded against dirt and other impurities and strategically positioned within a lightweight, yet rugged, reinforced graphite frame. Also protected by the Deadbolt Slyder's tough exterior housing are oversized, precision-cut brass gears that mesh together perfectly for maximum cranking power. For outstanding castability, the Deadbolt Slyder is equipped with an advanced magnetic braking system, specially designed to enhance casting distance and keep backlash in check. Pinnacle's Unlimited Anti-Reverse' comes standard too, eliminating handle play for bone-jarring hook-sets.

Additional Deadbolt Slyder features include an audible star drag for precise adjustments, plus a Titanium-shielded line guide for smooth line flow when you're casting, retrieving or fighting a fish.

Given this reel's cutting-edge performance and unique features, anglers will be surprised to learn how affordable it really is. Offered at just $109.99 (MSRP), the Deadbolt Slyder is priced to fit the budget of any serious bass angler.
