Accurate BX2-500BLS Boss Extreme 2-Speed Reel
Accurate’s new Boss Extreme 2-Speed TwinDrag reels offer fishermen the ultimate in versatility. The new BX2 reels feature a new ARB bearing that is shielded on both sides to increase its corrosion resistance, and the Accucast feature has been removed to create a smoother all around reel with an amazing free spool. Light tackle anglers will love their effortless, precision casting capabilities, and once hooked up, the ease in which they can control the fight with a responsive lever drag. Medium to heavy tackle anglers, on the other hand, can crank down hard on the TwinDrag to battle the largest game fish with heavy, braided lines. The exclusive TwinDrag system also supplies ultra-smooth drag operation, which results in fewer broken lines and less pulled hooks. Made in all of the most popular sizes from the previous generation of BX2 reels, we have the perfect size reel to handle small, medium and larger size game fish from calico bass, halibut, redfish, bluefish, barracuda and king mackerel to big striped bass, sturgeon, yellowtail, dorado, amberjack, wahoo, tuna and billfish.

WOW - what a reel
This is among the best pieces of tackle that I own. The drag is so smooth that you cannot even feel it playing out. Light enough to hold all day long at the rails. Plenty of drag and it just feels like a strong tough reel.
ProsLight weight, strong, durable finish resists boat rash.
ConsAccurate are a bit high maintenance and need to be serviced regularly.

What jigging rod would you recommend for this reel? Will be doing some bottom fishing in the Gulf of Mexico, and butterfly jigging in the Florida keys. Thanks.
The Shimano Trevala Butterfly Jigging Casting 6ft - 6'6'' Rods would pair well with the Accurate BX2-500BLS Boss Extreme 2-Speed Reel.

I live on the gulf in Southwest Florida and wanted to know what jigging rod you recommend for this reel. When I am at home, I will use to bottom fish grouper, when I go to the keys I will be using it to butterfly jig the hump in Islamorada, and will roll for wahoo. What would you recommend?
The Shimano Trevala Butterfly Jigging Casting Rods 5'8''XH or 6'H would pair well with the Accurate BX2-500BLS Boss Extreme 2-Speed Reel.
