Home GlossaryK to OM Multiplier


by David Proudfoot

Multiplier – A multiplier reel is one where the line spool is carried on a revolving spool supported by bearings. It gets its name from the fact that the retrieve is geared so that one turn of the handle results in multiple turns of the spool. It is fished above the rod and may be fitted with a level-wind which lays the line evenly on the spool. Also known as a bait-casting reel or conventional reel in the States. The drag system may be either a star drag or a lever drag. For casting the multiplier is usually fitted with either a centrifugal brake or a magnetic cast control system.
