The Tern, Accurate's first star drag offering, is perfect for anglers who want the lightest and smoothest star drag experience possible. The use of CVX technology allows for an incredibly lightweight, yet strong frame to take down the toughest game fish, while the TwinStarDrag allows for anglers to have confidence putting the pressure to the fish. With carbon fiber drag washers and stainless steel friction washers on each side of the main gear, rather than a stack of washers on only one side, anglers will experience an unmatched smooth payout of drag at every click of the ergonomic star that fits perfectly in your hand. Whether it is castability, strength, or a smooth drag that you are looking for, the Tern is the ultimate star drag experience.

Accurate Tern TwinStarDrag Reel Features:

  • First ever TwinStarDrag reel
  • CVX design
  • Accurate-exclusive stainless steel Anti-Reverse Bearing
  • Made from 6061-T6 aircraft grade aluminum
  • 17-4 Heat treated steel gears and gear shaft
  • Billet aluminum power knob
  • Made in the USA

September 2, 2019
I have the 400X in Silver. So far so good. First use found the gears slightly noisy, and somewhat limited free spool. After about 15 min of cast and retrieve the gears are already smoothing out, and the free spool has improved dramatically. The free spool lever is quite stiff but improving with each use. I like this reel overall and may be looking at a 500N size in the future.
ProsLight weight quality build.
ConsMust be used a bit before the quality is apparent. Holds slightly less line than the specs claim.

Accurate quality?
July 10, 2019
I have the 300x. Took it too Florida for some mutton snapper fishing. First day, mutton snapper. 5 lbs, reel handle comes apart. Take it to the folks in Florida to fix --Accurate dealer. Its fixed. Two days later, jigging, catch jolt head porgy, handle comes apart --the part that you hold on too. The bearing kept falling apart. This reel was used exactly twice. Brand new. Accurate still has it.

I love my accurate reels. The 400 Boss is a kick ass reel. I assume the Terns will be too. For no?? Advise folks to hold off a bit. There is something wrong with the engineering of the reel handle, straight from the mouth of the fellow working as an authorized accurate repair person.

ProsI do not know, it broke on its first two outings, it was lucky 2/2 on fish. :-)
ConsSomething wrong with the 300X reel handle bearings. This is what I was told by the fellow doing the fix.

Smooth yet muscle bound
April 26, 2019
Loaded up with 65lb braid and 40lbs top shot. took it out for flat lining yellowtail in Baja. Pulled on 25 to 35lb ers with no problems. Very smooth drag and plenty of muscle
ProsGreat drag and good size handle
ConsClicker is too short and stiff. Hard to turn off when hands are wet or in the middle of fighting a big fish.
By Lee
Great jigging reel
March 29, 2019
While it’s a good reel and some may have a need for its size, the trade off for the extra capacity vs the size of the spool didn’t equal out for me. I got 300m of PE3 on the 300x and not much more on this one.
By Lee
Great reel for deep jigging
March 29, 2019
Just like the other sizes The drag is tough and the ergonomics are great for jigging.
ProsFits 800m of PE3 Berkley Fireline Large crank and knob
ConsI just wish the spool was a littl narrower and taller for easier line lay while jigging.

I brought this reel as a compliment to my other lever drag Accurates. It’s strictly used for catfishing. Paired with a Big Cat Fever rod the casting is super smooth. Flick of the wrist and you can literally throw almost 80yrds. The drag is enough to throw the brakes on any freshwater species in my part of the country. Good size as well

Warning for buyers
December 11, 2018
I recently purchased a TERN 300-x, it is my first accurate and I was very impressed with the reel overall, HOWEVER, the foot of the reel was too large to fit on any of my light jigging rods or my inshore rods.

The foot of the reel measures 7.2cm in length. For comparison, the reel foot on a Shimano Calcutta measures 6.2cm. Measure the reel seat on your fishing rod before buying.

I am not sure if this is standard for Accurate reels but I wish this had been listed in the product description
ConsWon't fit on many light or even medium action jigging or inshore rods.

Great little reel TX 400X and affordable
November 13, 2018
I use my TX 400X reel for king fishing off of North Carolina piers. Excellent graduated drag to apply small amounts of pressure on fish. Holds enough 30 lb braided line to handle most fish I encounter off of the pier. Looks great extremely light weight and easy to use. Recommend this reel for anyone looking to King fish piers.
ProsExcellent fishing reel.
ConsThe only thing I would change is the clicker, I personally like a loud clicker. I can hear this one okay but louder is better. I feel sure there will be more colors available in the future, and when a silver/blue model comes out I will buy one for my daughter.
By Jessie
these reels made me guess getting my personal use Avet
October 21, 2018
only thing that changed my mind is the drag pressure.
Prosnice looking reels and functional. Go with an Avet for the price.
