It will be a step up from the DPX, incorporating both the dawgs and anti-reverse bearing. So, it's a bit on the extreme side of things, perhaps more what the hard-core jiggers are seeking. I'm a fan of Accurate reels and like the DPX a lot, but I'll need to get this on in my hands before I'm jumping up and down, I like the mousetrap they already have. So, I'm going to need some convincing...need to get a production model in my hands.


Great Stuff!
Mark

I put one in my hand and the freespool was fantastic. Went online auction and won one of the first production models Serial number is 0010. This is a dauntless dx2-600 2speed. The drag lever is the same as the old dpx model but the frame is definately dx with no cast control knob. Real dissapointment. I can't get 15 seconds of free spool from this thing. I will call accurate warranty service Monday and see what they will do for me. For now the jury is leaning toward Avet.

I have a DPX2 500N that I never use. I mostly go on 1-2 day trips and unless the fish get stupid I keep my count high from well timed and placed baits. The Avets do a better job for me. I have always loved the quality of Accurate reels but the are for jigging or trolling IMO instead of casting light baits. The AccuCast just doesn't do what a cast control on a lightweight star drag reel does or the magnetic controls on an Avet Raptor. I would trade it but I live in a Desert State.


Tackle stores love me.
Fish fear me.

Don't disagree on the cast control which USED to be on the Accurate reels. That's now gone away, and it's no loss. Over the years Accurate has also reduced the weight of their spool. So, casting has improved from years past. But, still I can't disagree with you, Avet's magnetic cast control does a much better job, and is of benefit in tossing smaller lures or baits which open the door to serious backlashes.


Great Stuff!
