The Gander Mountain Classic Ice Fishing Reel makes for a great addition to your ice fishing experience. The Reel's spool is crafted with aluminum and is strong enough to outlast those cold winter months outside. The soft-touch handle provides comfort when you are vigorously reeling, or simply waiting for the fish to bite. The reel is coated with a defrost lubricant to prevent it from freezing over in the cold weather. 3 ball-bearing reel.
