Introduction To The Fury: Accurate Reels
Accurate makes exceptional reels and their name continues to grow especially among Southern California offshore fishermen. The sturdy design and well-thought out features provide tons of enjoyment on larger model fish.

Accurate Fury Reel Models, Specs, And Features
Fury Single Speed Models
Fury single speed reels come in 7 models and three different sizes. Each size has a narrow option and the largest 600 model also has a double narrow reel available. Accurate reels manufacture all 7 models in a left-handed version and models are as follows:
• FX-400N • FX-400 • FX-500N • FX-500
• FX-600N • FX-600 • FX-600NN
Fury Two Speed Models
The ability to drop into low gear and put more force on heavy tuna sure comes in handy and Accurate reels provides such fighting capability. The Fury 2 speed resembles the 1 speed with 7 models and three sizes (a double narrow as well) which list by the following numbers:
• FX2-400N • FX2-400 • FX2-500N • FX2-500
• FX2-600N • FX2-600 • FX2-600NN
Accurate Reel Specifications – Fury Single Speed
The heaviest FX-600 holds 500 yards of 40-pound mono or 500 yards of 65-pound braid. The lighter FX-400 wraps out at 325 yards of 20-pound mono or 325 yards of 50-pound braid. Max drag ranges from 18 to 24 pounds going from lightest to heaviest reel.
Gear ratios of Fury Accurate reels bring up an important feature. All 7 models claim a base gear ratio of 4:1. but also come with a 6:1 option signified by an X at the end of the model number.
Fury Accurate reels weigh 20 to 26 ounces from the smallest to largest model and use 6 class 5 ABEC stainless steel bearings. The additional anti-reverse (ARB) bearing stops on a dime and claims stainless steel protection as well.
Fishing reel features always amaze me and help define the functions
which turn a reel into a mechanism of power or a piece of junk. Accurate reels make design a high priority and hit the right mix of technological features.
All Fury Accurate Reels feature their AccuDrag system which offers
precise lever setting and constant lubrication for a smooth drag. Once again max drag ranges from 18 to 24 pounds.
Stainless Steel Gears, Bearings, And Anti Reverse Bearing
Saltwater reels get the worst of elemental conditions which call for nothing short of stainless steel anti-rust protection. Accurate reels do well by placing stainless steel through and through.
Accurate contains the spool in a sleeve which prevents the issue of pinion gear friction. A pinion gear that hits the spool slows down and shortens the cast. Not so with Accurate reels sleeved spool.
Heat Treated Pinion Gears
Pinion gears of the Fury go through extreme heat which hardens the metal. Durability comes about from extra care to a reels mechanical parts.
Large Gear Shaft
Implementing a larger gear shaft accomplishes two things; it strengthens the shaft which enables it to perform at a higher level of torque. A necessary feature when game fish require all the leverage one can find.
Accurate Reel Specifications – Fury Two Speed
Fury two-speed reels resemble the one-speed models in most respects though a few differences must be noted. Accurate no longer offers a high and low gear model option since two speeds mean it’s already built in. Two speeds do make the reels weigh a little more which can be seen in the FX-600’s 26 ounces vs. the FX2-600’s 30 ounces.
Line capacity specs match up between single and two-speed models but gear ratios differ in all respects. Gear ratios in the two-speed models obviously change from high to low but they have different specs between models. Be sure to check the parameters.
Features remain virtually the same in Fury two speed reels with just a couple additions.
All Fury Accurate two-speed reels come with a reel bag which might not seem like much but they sure help protect reels when not in use.
Direct Shift Mechanism
Accurate reels patented technology direct shift mechanism boosts the two-speed transition. This innovative design allows flawless transition from high to low gear and back again which lets fishermen concentrate on the fight.
The silver frame with gold reel and handle make for a sharp finish which catches the viewer’s eye. The calibrated lever drag mechanism lets anglers fine tune their setting quickly and helps land fish. A strong aluminum handle with a comfortable rubber grip knob finish off the already strong qualities of Fury Accurate reels.
Pros And Cons Of Fury Accurate Reels
Accurate reels offer fishermen some real advantages when it comes to the Fury baitcaster. Affordability, durability, and performance just make incredible value and Fury reels meet each standard.
The aircraft aluminum frame, spool, and handle combined with stainless steel bearings and gears spell durability. Simple yet well-chosen technology make for strong performance and the asking price just can’t be beaten.
Accurate reels go away from their patented twin drag system which hurts but they did drop their price range way down too. Fury durability may be good but I like the performance and slightly lower price of the Penn Fathom better.
Anglers looking for stronger working features could move up to Accurate’s own Dauntless line but spending that much I’d look at Shimano’s Trinidad A. Features on the Fury baitcaster perform but they are simple.
