808 bowfisher

$44.99 - $54.99
The 808® Bowfisher features all-metal gears, a strong metal reel foot and is pre-spooled with 80lb. braid.  WARNING: Improper use of this reel can result in serious injury or death. We recommend that you use a cable or slide system when attaching the line to the arrow. The most hazardous snap-back can occur when fishing line is tied to the tail of an arrow. Snap-back is a condition that can happen when, as the bowstring is released, a trailing loop of line can tangle with the bowstring, cabling, arrow rest, or other items which can result in serious injury or death. Minimize the amount of slack in your line before shooting an arrow. Greater slack in the line increases chance of snap-back of an arrow. • ALWAYS press Thumb Button on reel to release the line pick-up pins before shooting. • ALWAYS check to see that line is not tangled. • ALWAYS check line for cuts or wear. If the line breaks, you cannot control the path of the arrow. • ALWAYS wet line before firing first shot. • ALWAYS wear eye protection. • DO NOT aim at other people, and keep arrows away from children. We strongly recommend that you take a bowfishing safety course before going bowfishing or contact your local archery shop with bowfishing expertise.

Model Number

Gear Ratio
Number of times the spool turns around with each turn of the handle. E.g. 4.3:1 means the spool turns 4.3 times with 1 handle turn. The higher the ratio, the faster you can retrieve your line.
Product Weight (oz)
Total weight of the reel. Lighter reels are generally easier to cast, help you detect fish bites better and keep your arm from getting tired!
Bearings
Number of ball bearings and roller bearings (usually listed as +1) to help your reel retrieve smoothly.
Anti-Reverse
This mechanism keeps your handle from turning backwards. Allows you to quickly hook a fish when it bites. Our QuickSet™ anti-reverse is good and Continuous anti-reverse is even better.
Hand Retrieve
Left or right hand retrieve. Most Zebco reels allow you to switch the handle to either side.
Pre-spooled Lb

The fishing line weight the reel is pre-spooled with. E.g. 10lb means the reel is pre-spooled with 10lb test line.

Mono Capacity
Number of yards of standard monofilament fishing line the reel will hold. E.g. 85/6 means the spool will hold 85 yards of 6 lb. test line.
IPT (in.)
Number of inches of line retrieved per turn of the handle. Higher IPT = faster retrieves. Good for fast-moving lures like spinnerbaits and for helping you stay hooked to fast-swimming fish.
