Aluminum Planer Reel Kits

No reviews yet Write a Review


When considering upgrading or replacing components in your planer board mast setup, it's essential to evaluate your current configuration and requirements to make the most suitable choice between the Traxstech aluminum reel kits.

Here's a breakdown to help you decide based on your circumstances:

  1. Upgrading Existing Setup with Lexan Reel: Aluminum Planer Reel Kit (Part: #APR-350)

    • Designed specifically for upgrading from a Lexan reel to an aluminum planer reel.
    • Includes the aluminum planer reel and parts necessary for the drag system replacement.
    • Ideal if you already have a compatible mast setup and only need to replace the reel component.
  2. Complete Reel Setup for Planer Board Masts: Aluminum Planer Reel Kit for Planer Boat Masts (Part: #APR-400)

    • Specifically designed for planer board masts and comes with various components.
    • Includes the reel assembly, handle, reel shank, line guide with a t-nut, and a pulley with an eyebolt for the mast's top.
    • Suitable if you require a complete reel setup for your planer board mast or if you don't have an existing reel and need a comprehensive solution.

Consider these factors when choosing between the kits:

  • Current Setup: If you already have a functional mast setup and only need to upgrade the reel component, the APR-350 kit might suffice.
  • Requirement for Complete Setup: If you lack certain components or need a full reel setup for your planer board mast, the APR-400 kit would be more appropriate.

Ensure compatibility by verifying your existing mast configuration and comparing it with the components included in each kit. Additionally, consider any specific preferences or features you may require for efficient and effective planer board operation.

Ultimately, the choice between the Traxstech aluminum reel kits should align with your specific needs, whether it's a partial upgrade or a complete overhaul of your planer board mast setup.
