The GOAT – Bait Cast Reel

PDF Download – The GOAT Schematics

This isn’t your daddy’s bait caster. This is a true marvel of modern ingenuity and craftsmanship. This is the GOAT.

Each reel begins as a solid block of 6061-T6 bar stock aluminum and is cut on our 9-axis CNC machine bringing each shape and specification to life with the highest level of precision technology can achieve. Frames are then assembled and anodized with a clear coat finish so you can see everything the GOAT is and be sure of everything it isn’t. No plastic frames, no poured pieces, no kitschy marketing ploys or the hook of ambiguous technological advancements. In other words, there’s no bull, just Bates . . . just the guarantee that our reels are built to last and built to perform.
