(08/03/2002 - SPIRIT LAKE, IOWA)... It’s all in the name. Spider products mean quality products. The new Spidercast Tarantula spinning reels are offered to the angler with an attitude, an attitude that every fish must be his prisoner. Nothing gets away when Spider products are used.
The two new Tarantula Series of spinning reels designed for ultra-light and light fishing situations include the Tarantula ST2200 and Tarantula ST2300.
Tarantula spinning reels start with a strong graphite body that is lightweight yet as tough as the reel’s name implies. Eight bearings create the smoothest and quietest operation imaginable from the first cast of the morning to the last cast at dusk. The skirted aluminum spool contributes to the reel’s light weight and eliminates the risk of line wrap around the shaft beneath the spool. Hook sets are no worry with Instant Anti-Reverse and the easy-to-reach front drag gives the angler immediate adjustments to the spool tension adding to the angler’s dominance over the hooked query.
The one-touch handle is reversible for left or right hand operation with a soft-touch knob for increased comfort and reliable grip.
The 11.4-ounce Tarantula ST2200 carries 100 yards of 6-pound test line and the Tarantula ST2300 weighs 12.5 ounces and can hold 180 yards of 8-pound test monofilament. Both reels have a gear ratio of 5.3:1 and a suggested retail price of 29.95.
