THE NEW BANAX KAIGEN 500 TM ELECTRIC MULTIPLIER REEL
TM= Twin Motor
Banax combine their finest components and features with precision manufacturing technology. It provides strong cranking power by two electric motors (one for speed and one for power) and adjustable accurate depth digital control.
hat makes the Banax electric reels so much better than traditional electrics?
First of all, they are Electric or Manual so no need to worry about blown fuses or dead batteries when you have
the big one on. They are much lighter, faster, quieter, smarter, and in many cases just as strong or stronger.
They also have a line counter, level-wind, and auto-stop features. These reels make a great day of fishing that
much better. No more hand cranking to check your bait.
Are the reels Electric or Manual?
Our reels are electric, manual, or both. They can be strictly electric by using the Speed Adjustable Accelerator
Lever, strictly manual by using the handcrank, or both by using the Speed Adjustable Accelerator Lever &
handcrank simultaneously. The handcrank remains stationary in electric mode unless you choose to turn it.
Does the Banax have an Auto-Stop feature?
Yes, and it's great. This prevents pulling your swivel or kite through the eye of your rod. Just engage the speed
adjustable accelerator lever and walk away.
What power source can I use?
The reels are 12V (DC) like most other electric reels. A 12V battery is your best choice, however we use 12V
(400 amp) portable jump starters and they last an entire day of fishing with to 2 people using it.
What kind of power cord comes with reels?
The Banax come with 9ft (nine foot) power cords with alligator clips.
Who is Banax?
"Banax" (as it is now known) was originally founded as a joint venture with Daiwa-Japan in 1973 and separated
from Daiwa-Japan in 1986. It merged with LG Int'l Corp. in July of 1992 and re-branded itself Bando Sports Ltd.
in August of 1992. The "Banax" brand was created in 1997 and the company later changed it's name to Banax
Co., LTD in 2002. Banax's baitcasting reels have long been a favorite of bass fishermen.
