I have been trying one of these reels out on the bass and the river and i must say i am really impressed with it. It comes in the 4011 size only and has a 4 year warranty on the internal gear provided the waterproof seal hasn't been broken, Which is one hell of a warranty. the price is £99.99 yes you did read right and believe me this reel should be £200 but im not complaining. It is brought to the uk by Italia Fishing U.K the spec is as follows
The Alcedo Aluminium Pro Spinning Reel with 4 year warranty on gears.

The famous Italian Alcedo brand has made the most modern of reels with a small body and large rotor and spool featuring 10 BB and infinite anti reverse.

All the main bearings are fully sealed and waterproofed

,PERFECT FOR KAYAK FISHING WHEN YOUR REEL IS TAKING ON SALT WATER

The most sophisticated Alcedo technology has been used .

A new type of Aluminium body.

Advanced ZMK gears,2 times as hard as normal ones and a revolutionary soft touch feel ,making the reel warm to the touch.

SDP gears for enhanced smoothness and power

Quick release front spool with aluminium/titanium spare

Sealed waterproof body

Soft touch body

A top class multidisk front drag and shock resistant bail wire

its worth every penny just for the warranty alone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dave,
How about a little more detail, capacity, weight, line retrieve per turn of the handle.
And what is the detail of that warranty- straight replacement if faulty within four years, as long as you don't open the body?? What happens if someone just doesn't bother to clean it?? Still covered??

Dave i think its straight replacement within 4 years provided the 2 seals havent been broken, the 4 year warranty is on the internal gears, i will double check and post the answers

I have a couple of their reels that are really good value.

They make some good reasonably priced lures as well.

I bought an Alcedo Green Line speed jigging rod after a very good write up by a guy who fishes Cuba a lot.

Seems very good value, but only fought my son with it in the lounge so far!

Peter that is a good idea and something the admin on here has been considering recently. As for the reel, sounds good, it would be nice to hear from someone once they have had it a while.

Think you will find that this is a freshwater reel and the 4 year guarantee is for fresh water use only. They do a sea reel - ALUSPIN?? - but this one doesn't come with a guarantee.

Great reels, all the lads here have them. They are soooooo smooth it's ridiculous. Alcedo very long established company, you can buy antiques reels from Alcedo!
The boys have had no problems so far, will have to let them know about the warranty though, they think it's for saltwater too! P.s the guys here fish most days

Had a choice of the Alcedo but chose an Abu Soron instead wish I'd gone for one of these now if I'm honest read a lot of reports seem very good!! Happy with the abu good reel but don't think it will last.........

I see they do these in 4011 and 5011 sizes - Anyone have any idea how these compare with Shimano sizes?
They do seem to get a good press.
