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

Awesome reel! From SPJ to shark fishing this reel can handle it
January 8, 2022
Slow pitch jigging 20lb braid to shark fishing 60lb mono. This reel crushes it. I never thought I would own a 300$ reel and now I’m prepared to buy another accurate reel. Definitely worth every penny.
  • Everything, amazing reel
  • Clicker seems like it won?t be loud but when I fished the keys bridges with cars, you can totally hear it from 20 yards away. It?s not as loud and different frequency then other clickers but still is usable

Excellent fit for live bait and jigs. Paired with a Okuma PCH 801H for central California bottom fishing. I am impressed with the smooth drag response and power this palm sized reel offers. Liked the black anodized finish for my match also. Can't wait to hang some serious fish in 2022.

Tern 400x
December 3, 2021
Very smooth reel with a lot of power in a small package, not one issue out of it as expected with accurate. Spoiled with 40lb hollow core on a G-loomis rod, works great on piers and grey off the boat.

Great reel
August 4, 2021
Purchased this reel specifically for Stripers. The reel is relatively light but very strong. The large handle is comfortable, but the best part is the smooth powerful drag system. I had many fish in the low twenties to the mid 40 pound range this spring and the reel handled them with ease.
  • Light ish
  • Great drag system
  • Nice finish
  • Compact size
  • Expensive

My Fav reel for throwing jigs
April 23, 2021
I own many Accurate Valiant reels.
They are so powerful and light!
So I decided to try the Tern this time.
Still light and got powerful drags.
Maybe it does not look fancy as other Japanese reels but it does their jobs.
