Dolphin electric reels are the perfect marriage of technology and sport. They combine a quiet 12 or 24 volt electric motor and a manual handle override system with a classic Shimano reel. The result is an extremely versatile power reel, and the world's only electric reel with manual override. Rust and corrosion resistant, with a rugged steel gear and chain drive. The entire unit is compact and light weight, function exactly like the manual ones, and won't interfere with normal operations. All new Dolphin Electreel reels come complete with a Shimano reel, ready to fish. The adapters are also available separately to fit reels that you already own.
