500 Avalon Morro Bay – THIS IS THE FIRST on-water photo of the Accurate Tern 500 Narrow, taken in mid-June with a reel that company vice president Justin Poe said was in the vicinity the day before.
AVALON – It’s hard to keep a secret, but that’s exactly what we’ve done when it comes to Accurate’s two new larger Tern reels, the 500 Narrow and 600, which were recently announced at ICAST alongside their sibling the 600 Narrow. Starting this week, these will be the biggest moves by American stars on the market.

We first learned about them on June 19th and 20th when we had Justin Poe from the company on our option card in Catalina – we can’t tell. Poe, the punctual vice president, brought in several reels that were still classified.

Employees on the trip — myself and director of ad sales and marketing Chuck Buhagiar — were invited to test-drive the prototype 500 Narrows and 600 Terns that we were told were straight off the machines that day, but we were sworn to secrecy “down to the coils.” Ready.”
I have Terns 300 and 400 in my quiver, and actually caught a 35 pound bass on the compact but powerful 300 on that trip. To me, the new 500 Narrow and 600 were images of the Terni released a year earlier, but larger.
Before we get into more details about the new coils, a refresher first. Accurate’s Terns were the company’s first stars, and like the other reels the company produces at its Corona facility, they are carefully crafted from 6061-T6 aluminum. The Terni were the first twin-drag star drag reels – Accurate calls it the TwinStarDrag feature. The heat-treated steel gears and pinion shafts are thick and strong, and although the reels themselves are light and compact, they are strong.
Neither Buhagiar nor I had any luck catching fish on the new reels, but we did see Poe hook a 35-pound-plus yellowtail and an even bigger barbel, one on each model. Po is a big, strong man and nobody gave him any trouble, but a lot of that was due to the crew.

“I’d say they’re very powerful, but also very light,” Poe said after the experience. “The 500 Narrow is 16 ounces and has 33 pounds of drag. It’s the perfect reel structure for yellows and wolves, where you rarely need more than 300 yards of line. Why have a bigger reel when you have so much horse?”
The 500 Narrov will be available in 6.1 : 1 and 4.7 : 1 gear ratios. The 6.1 is fast, taking 45 inches of line per crank. The 4.7 naturally delivers more torque. It will be priced at $329.95.
The 600 has even more lines in its 6.1 version, 52.7 inches per crank. It’s smoke! Poe sees it as a great yo-yo or a great bottom roller depending on where you are in the country. Holds 500 yards of 80 pound braid – a lot! Poe said that makes her versatile.
WASTING NO TIME after ICAST, Accurate immediately got to work building new, larger Tern models. Poe said they will be widely available in August.

The 6.1:1 version of the 600 delivers plenty of torque, but by comparison, the 4.7 puts out an extra 35 to 40 percent—it’s a winch, but it still needs 41 inches of line per crank. The 600 weighs 17.4 ounces.
At ICAST, Accurate also introduced the 600 Narrow, which we didn’t get to see because it didn’t exist. That says something special about Accurate’s ability to build a new reel model — the company is nimble. Poe told us he sees the 600 Narrow as the ideal wahoo reel.
“The 52-inch is the fastest star coating ever made in recent years,” he said. “It’s the ultimate wahoo reel, where you don’t need power, you need speed. It’s great for that.”
These new narrow transoms quickly became a factory favorite, Poe said. “They are the leading reels for bait applications such as popper casting,” he said. “The line comes off them easier and comes back on easily. They feel much better in the hand.”
