The Ultegra XTD SPOD is a new big pit reel, specially designed for spodding / marker float fishing for carp. Its based on the successful Ultegra XTD 14000 carp reel and has similar features, except it has been adjusted to be perfect for spodding. These are the differences between normal Ultegra XTD and Ultegra SPOD XTD. – Shallow spool: for spodding less line capacity is needed. – Gear ratio: 5,2:1 instead of 4.3:1. This means more retrieving speed. – Retrieve speed: 124 cm instead of 103 cm per winch. – Line clips: 3 instead of 1. Handle knob: Egg type instead of T-type for more grip. – Spare spool: 0 instead of 1. Therefore, RRP is lower.
