We set out to build the ultimate commercial bandit reel.
Our goal was simple; we set out to build the most functional commercial bandit reel in the fishing industry. We began by engineering it with all the functions that commercial and green stick fishermen are accustomed to. We designed it for ease of use and the durability that you count on to keep fish on your deck. Use it for bluefin or yellowfin tuna, swordfish, deep-drop rigs, for snapper and large grouper.

Deep Drop Custom Made Flexible Carbon Fibre Flat Boom is now available to suit the ProFisher Electric Reel, Deep Drop Custom Belitronic Reel Mount and Deep Drop Commercial Hydraulic Reels. Consisting of a dual tapered carbon fibre section manufactured to our specifications , and 316 S/S base for simple bolt-on installation. The flat boom flexes so fish bites can be clearly seen and reduces jerking and snatching when winching up fish so fewer fish are lost in rough seas. More

Deep Drop Commercial and Belitronic introduce a smarter way to hook fish,
the BJ5000 Electronic Jigging Machine.
This fishing reel is aimed for trolling and longline fishing in deep sea. It is equipped with an aluminium interchangeable drum fixed on an hydraulic regulating clutch/ brake. The drum can hold 1500m of lines (Ø1.2mm).
The line hauling is free from the disconnected drum and the turn is helped by the progressive brake.
Jo Rowley has been a pioneer in commercial line fisheries in the South West Pacific for over 35 years.
He was a leader in the East Coast Tuna and Billfish Fishery and one of the first to develop deep setting techniques for Big Eye Tuna and Albacore in the Coral Sea.
In the early nineties, Jo helped establish the fishery for Broadbill Swordfish off South East Queensland where it quickly developed to a catch of 2,500t each year. He also completed a survey for the Government of Tonga targeting Swordfish in their fishing zone.
Since retiring from long-line fishing, Jo has developed new techniques using the latest advances in synthetic fibre, custom designed hydraulic reels, and advanced electronics to target deep water species with reduced by-catch of unwanted or vulnerable species.
