Fin-Nor Marquesa Lever Drag Reels are the perfect reels for tournament fishing or stand-up fishing with the thinner braided superlines. Marquesa is precision-machined from 6061-T6 aluminum, and features one of the strongest drag systems ever put into a reel.

The Marquesa 2-speed models feature a fast 6.1:1 retrieve and a powerful 3.1:1 retrieve for even greater versatility and control.

The single-speed Marquesa reels come in two model types: a topless model for easy spool access and control, and a model with a top bar (T) that kite fishermen will especially appreciate. Kite fishermen will also appreciate the dial that allows custom adjustment of clicker tension. The top bar models are pefect for challenging sailfish and the techniques needed to catch them.
Fin-Nor Marquesa Reels features:
  • One piece frame and one piece spool precision-machined from 6061-T6 aluminum
  • Smooth and strong-running carbon-fiber drag system
  • Fast 6.1:1 Retrieve Ratio
  • Adjustable lever drag
  • 6+1 ball bearings with back-up pawl and rachet for strength
  • Oversized stainless steel drive gear and pinion
  • Adjustable clicker on the 20T and 30T models
  • Ergonomic crank handle

First choice
August 3, 2016
I have 4, two speed reels and this is the one I prefer to use. Reliable and consistent drag system allows you to add just what is needed. Reliable performance instills confidence every time I pick it up.

This is by far one of my favorite reels. The true feel of a quality piece every time I pick it up. Smooth operation and the drag can be added easily and in the proper increment.

Use the 50 for trolling for dolphin. Reel looks awesome and works the same. Very smooth drag. It will handle a big bull dolphin or wahoo.
ProsLooks great, strong smooth drag, good line capacity for offshore trolling.

Fin Nor MA12
October 31, 2014
I have three of these reels. They excellent light tackle reels. I fish light tackle for Mutton Snapper and other reef fishes (including Red Snapper on the Gulf). I have never had a problem with these reels. The drags are first-rate. On one occasion, one of MA12 was just sticking a bit in free spool. I wrote Fin Nor (expecting a referral to an approved repair facility/dealer); instead, they replaced the reel with no questions asked (the reel that was sticking a bit, was more than two years old!). This surprised me, but it also demonstrates they stick behind their equipment. You really cannot ask for more.
ProsSee review comments.

What The Specs Don't Say (Cast Control)
May 2, 2014
The open top single speed Marquesa models have a centrifugal cast control designed in. This is something you can see in an exploded view but I have never seen this listed in any description on any site. I only own the little MA12 at this time and it is as easy to cast as any freshwater bait-cast reel I own. Even the novice should be able to cast this reel with baits of 1 ounce and over. A real pleasure to use.
ProsBuilt in centrifugal cast control makes this reel all but impossible to backlash. Cosmetics, fit and finish are second to none. Reel is smooth and offers plenty of drag for it's size.
ConsAt 20 ounces this reel is heavier than comparable reels in it's size class. Wish it had a totally silent anti-reverse but it's not overly loud by any means

Love this little reel, came with my bigger Fin nor real, not sure if it is worth 319. But since it was a bundled deal, well worth buy the big reel and get this one for free. Handles very well nonetheless.
ProsThe feel ez drag setting Better to buy the bigger Santiago reel and get this one for free.
ConsNot sure if I would pay 319.95 for this reel.

Buyer beware!
November 5, 2012
First of all, I bought the two for one deal where I received a free Marquesa with the purchase of a Santiago > $400. After I purchased the Santiago 12, it took about two months to receive the Marquesa 20-2 from Tackle Direct due to unavailability/back order. They offered substitutes, but I wanted what I had orignally purchased. When I finally received and used my Marquesa-2 for the first time, the spool and speed changing gears locked up and jammed. I sent the reel to a Fin Nor (owned by Zebco) repair facility in Tulsa, Oklahoma and it took them over three months fix and return it to me. I got some t-shirts and hats, advertising Fin Nor, from them to try to console my frustration with the repair facility and their product.It didn't. This Chinese made product looks solid on the outside, but the internal quality is questionable. I won't ever buy another Fin Nor reel again even if it cost only a penny.
ProsLooks good on the outside.
ConsReels are heavy, service facilty is awefully slow with repairing and returning broken reels, reels are undependable. They're made in China.
