CASTING SERIES

VALIANT


Pictured: Valiant 300 and 400 Two Speed

600 size arriving 8/1/17

Like the aerospace-type designers they are, Accurate approached creating a fishing reel with uniquely clear vision and a good dose of common sense.  Accurate came up with a logical way to solve an inherent design weakness with all conventional fishing reels. Instead of applying drag pressure on one side of the reel's spool, Accurate reels feature TWIN-DRAGS.   Yep, drag pressure is applied evenly on both sides of the spool.  And for the same reasons you don't just put brakes on one side of a car, applying drag pressure evenly makes for a much better fishing reel.  There's another benefit, DRAG WEAR and HEAT. Since drag pressure is exerted on both sides, less drag pressure needs to be applied on each side of the reel.  For 20# of drag, you'd effectively need to apply 10 lbs. of drag on each side of the reel.  This means, besides smoothness, you'll experience less heat build-up and resultant loss of drag performance.

Another point that influenced Accurate's designs: They entered the reel market after Izorline's Spectra was well established with the Long Range guys.  Given Spectra's thin diameter, it became popular to use heavy line on smaller more comfortable fishing reels and still maintain good line capacity. The reels had to be strongly overbuilt, or things could literally "come-apart".   Spectra kind of pushed all the gear up one line class or two.  In many cases, even a top quality reel would have to be modified by Cal's or Cofe to maintain freespool, because the reel wasn't initially designed for what Spectra has now made possible in terms of drag setting.  Accurate recognized the potential of Spectra, and designed their reels to maximize it's best properties.  Accurate has created a full series of TwinDrag reels now, and they represent the pinnacle of performance.

If ever a line of reels was designed for the long range fisherman, this is certainly it.   Accurate  spent a great deal of time testing the product, putting their reels through lots of use with the San Diego Long Range fleet, among other demanding markets.  As a result, Accurate designed their reels in uncompromising fashion.   The components are the best you can buy, the best bearings (6-7 ABEC Class 5 bearings!), the best aluminum, the best anodizing...not to mention, the best design with TWIN-DRAG balanced fish fighting working for you.  Accurate has made major enhancements to their reels since their introduction.  The Accurate reels are well worth owning. Their technology is proven - and it's GREAT STUFF!

All Accurate Reels offered include:

FREE SHIPPING + FREE High Quality BRAID

SPOOLING/RIGGING:
Please note, you will see many spooling options for the reels listed below. It's not our intent to confuse folks, but you do have options here unlike some places and we take pride in the fact we can rig things according to your needs, applications and preferences. We have been pioneers in Super Braid / Spectra rigging and we offer a few methods of rigging the lines together beyond most retailers capability, including the standard long range Bimini to Albright knots, Served and Sato connections. We do not use simple uni-to-uni knots for connecting braid to leader, we take the time to make a better knot, one that will hold up over time and deal with larger fish. Simpler knots don't work as well. You can see videos of what we do on our YouTube channel - CharkBait USA. We can upgrade that connection to one of several options, the benefit with those connections is that the diameter is thinner and that allows the line to flow through your rod's guides more smoothly, has less resistance in the water and is stealthier. If you have questions regarding rigging, please give us a call or zap back an email and we can go over things with you. Bottom line, you have options with us and we're proud of our staff's ability to rig things to your needs rather than simply "slapping" things together. Our knots hold, as does our in-line rigging.

Line Selections:
Braid - Cortland, Izorline, Momoi and ToroTamer
Mono - Hi Seas Triple Fish and Grand Slam IGFA, Izorline, Momoi, Izorline, P-Line & Berkley

ACCURATE: The folks that invented Big Fish from Small Reels


PROMOTIONS

All Accurate Valiant Series reels offered receive the benefit of FREE BRAID SPOOLING - and not just any braid. For a limited time we are including Toro Tamer's 16 STRAND HOLLOW CORE SPLICEABLE SUPER BRAID, arguably the best high end super braid on the market today. The new line opens up better than any other, making hollow core rigging downright easy (that's due to the construction of the line - 16 strands verses 8-12 for most other higher quality braids). You'll get 300 yards of the best braid made plus a free reel cover, and mono topshot if required. If you prefer, you can go "solid" on the braid, and even mulit-color depth counter if that's your preference in the Toro Tamer Super Braid, you also may select from Izorline and Momoi. Of course you have many other optional ways to rig up, so pay attention to the spooling options when making your selection. If you don't need the braid, we have an alternate offers.

Your Pick: SUPER BRAID - INCLUDING 12 or 16 STRAND TORO TAMER SPLICEABLE HOLLOW CORE,
or other offers...
With Valiant, ATD, DX and BX Series

You choose either FREE offer and we'll adjust your billing on your final invoice which you'll see in your mailbox within 24 hours of your order (Monday through Friday). Receive superior quality Super Braid (gel spun polyethelyne line) spooling with mono topshot (if desired) at no additional charge. Both offers represent a value of up to $80, and both are excellent.
 
 

 


For 2016 Accurate has introduced a new small gem of a reel...
For 2017 Accurate introduces larger size Valiants with greater line capacity and features...

ACURATE Valiant
-New Micro Reel with Mega POWER!

2017 ICAST Introduction - 600/600N/600NN & 800 Series

Accurate's newest fishing reel is the Valiant, a very interesting micro small model with mega power. Overseas Micro-Jigging has become a popular method for catching fish. Small jigs, fished vertically on rods with VERY light action can produce a catch when other methods won't do squat. In areas that have been "fished out" folks are catching fish they'd have missed without this method employed. Whether or not that's a positive step in overfished waters is not the point, the method is important and useful even in abundant waters, and the innovations in fishing technology used can be applied to different applications. In Mico-Jigging the fisherman works very small jigs, similar to how one should fish knife jigs (and similar iron) on parabolic rods matched to the jig weight for best action. Then, once hooked up the angler points the rod directly at the fish and uses the reel's power to crank in the fish. There's a certain amount of finesse and a certain measure of raw power employed in fishing this method. All the stress of the fight is handled by the reel, not the rod. Here, rather than Asia, micro-jigging may not become the rage, however the concept of taking larger fish on smaller gear is something we have all learned to love, and no doubt Accurate wrote the book on that pursuit.  Taking that style of fishing, dropping down to much lighter jigs and rods is what folks are doing in this new method of catching fish. Having a reel small enough to balance out on the rod and yet powerful enough to fight the fish is the key. Power is critical, and the new Valiant from Accurate combines superior power to exceptionally light weight - 9.9 ounces!

 

For 2016/17 Accurate further develops the Valiant project with more sizes, the 400 in single and two speed versions, and 500 in standard and narrow widths - and again in both single and two speed form.  Accurate showed off the 600 sizes at ICAST 2017, and hinted at two additional models, 800 & 1000 - (all in stock now).

COLORS - This has been a hard one for Accurate to address. They've wanted to offer color selection, but it's not an easy thing for the firm to accomplish given all the other time demands in the aerospace end of things.  They have now simplified things. Reels are available in silver with red trim as shown in most of our images. You can alternatively select the reel to be silver with blue accents similar to the red/silver shown on our site.  You can also order the Valliant in solid black as is shown below.

Specifications:

  • Patented Twin Drag Desigh

  • 6061 T6 Aluminum construction

  • Anodized for increased corrosion resistance

  • Smooth, easy find cam stop strike position

  • Lever drag recessed ergonomic thumb plate

  • Precision cut stainless steel gears

  • New design handle arm for increased torque and power

  • Anti-Reverse bearing with SEALED washers to prevent corrosion

  • Sleeved Spool for improved freespool performance

  • Manufacturer's stated drag measured at strike  20 lbs.

The 300 size does not have a reel clamp nor a clicker, the 400 size being wider does come with a clamp and a strong and loud clicker.
500 sizes, both have clickers and clamps.

For 2017 Accurate expands upon the Valiant series reels. We've received the new 400 size in both single and two speed forms. These new reels are almost the same weight, use the same frame/housing for both models. Weight is 14 ounces. Drag comes in at 20 lbs., specs consistent with the smaller 300 size. except line capacity increases to 300+ yds of 50# super braid.

The 500 sized Valiant's work well with 50# braid, offering 350+ yards on the narrow and 450+ on the standard width reels. Depending upon the braid used, hollow verses solid, 8 or more strands verses 4, it's possible to gain capacity. The upgrade lines (we include those options at no additional charge) move the reels into the 400 and 500 yard mark (100% braid 12 or 16 strand hollow-core or 8 strand solid). For most casting applications, it's best to work with a leader of 50 yards or greater (certainly cover your casting distance).

I must admit to some personal skepticism over the larger 800 and 1000 sized Valiants.  Those large sized reels made me a bit insecure, thinking folks would take advantage of the size and attempt to do things that really are best done on ATD 50's. I was concerned about fishing 80-100 lb lines at appropriate drag settings, heavy loading. The large Valiants have the line capacity to fish heavier tests. Well, I may need to revise my thinking...  The folks at Accurate are boasting of a 424 lb yellowfin tuna taken off Loreto Mexico on a Val 800 2 speed! The fellow who landed the fish, fishing aboard a private charter boat, is no slouch angler. He's a ringer, no doubt, and he knew what he was doing - not a random catch, it was targeted aboard a boat that could maneuver and chase the fish.  He was not overloading the reel, since he was running 50# P-line, he had very good line capacity to work with (also made use of 100# AFW Quattro Fluorocarbon leader and a Mustad 6/0 hook).  So, this is a far different situation than fishing aboard a Long Range sportfishing that's dead in the water with 28 guys at the rail.  Nonetheless, a yellowfin over 400 lbs is a super catch on any gear, and to think it was done on such a light reel is nothing short of amazing! I'll put aside my skepticism, that's an incredible accomplishment by a very experienced angler. This is a pending IGFA world record for 50# line.  Congratulations to the angler and to Accurate! - Mark
