ForTiTude Titanium Spinning Reel
ForTiTude Fishing’s titanium spinning reel ($490) is stronger than the traditional aluminum and won’t rust or pit. This is especially vital in saltwater, where the elements attack gear like a piranha on a naive tourist’s leg. The solid titanium construction is also 30% lighter than aluminum. That means slinging your Rapala at the weed line all day won’t make you quite as stiff; fishermen who hike long distances to find their secret spot should appreciate the decrease in pack weight all the more. A lifetime warranty with free parts replacement promises supreme long-term durability, and since it’s available in four sizes, you can take on anything from sunnies to stripers.
