Accurate Introduces Hot New Boss “Valiant” 300 Conventional Reel

Reviewer: Zander








Introduction: With the warmer water of the El Niño pattern the saltwater fishing off the coast of California has been especially exciting this year with Yellows and Bluefin being caught extremely close to shore. Timed perfectly Accurate is introducing a new 300 size single-speed reel that is designed specifically for inshore and light-action offshore applications, meet the new BV-300 Valiant.

The Valiant can be considered the first of Accurate’s “New Technology,” reels, and features an innovative design that minimizes size and weight while maximizing strength, durability and fish-fighting power. Built with shallow-water jigging in mind, the BV-300 is also ideal for a wide range of applications including live-bait coastal fishing, snapper fishing around reefs, jigging for silver salmon, or targeting school-sized tuna, yellowtail and dorado.

 


Accurate's newest reel is the aggressively styled Boss "Valiant" BV-300, which is designed for everything from shallow water jigging to school sized tuna and yellowtail... perfect for this year's El Niño


The unique curvature of the BV-300’s rugged 6061 T6 aircraft aluminum body gives this compact, extremely lightweight reel the structural integrity of models twice its size. Accurate states that it based the BV-300’s design on the original premise of the “Roman Arches or Domes used in early architecture,” with the goal of creating a significantly stronger reel that utilizes less material. While the BV-300’s walls are actually thinner, its non-flexing frame and side plate enable it to withstand more stress than similarly sized reels. The BV-300 weighs in at just 9.9 ounces, yet it’s capable of taking on surprisingly large saltwater adversaries.

 


The Valiant BV-300 features a slick machined handle knob and offset handle for more winding leverage


Another one of Accurate’s priorities in the Valiant’s design was to find a way to fit the drive train of a bigger reel into the BV-300’s small profile. They were able to accomplish that with the new design layout and also include a deeper, wider spool than competing in its class. The guts of the new reel utilize ultra-strong, high-precision stainless steel gears, and 9 ABEC 5 class ball bearings. Anglers are able to leverage the Valiant’s brisk 6:1 gear ratio with a comfortable machined power handle.

 


Though it has a small footprint Accurate was able to squeeze in a sizeable drive-train into this mighty little reel


Finally, the Valiant also incorporates a new Accurate feature, an easy-find “Cam Stop” at strike. Instead of having buttons at free spool and strike, the BV-300 has a secure indent in the Drag Cam that stops the drag lever before going into full. This useful feature provides anglers with a fail-safe during the heat of battle, preventing the angler from going too far into full drag. The Valiant looks like a pretty hot reel, especially with the red anodized highlights, and is designed to offer anglers a fun to fish single speed reel that gets right on the hairy edge of what anglers would normally expect from a two-speed reel.
