The Pike Master centrepin reel

The ultimate centre pin for dead baiting, no need for bite alarms and buzzers. A reel for the traditional pike angler, with a reel this strong you will have the confidence to not only land huge pike but Shawn the Sheep!

This reel is a stepped-up version of the 1915 Avon pattern. The spool is constructed with larger diameter line pillars for use with the modern braided lines and the foot is made to suit Fugi reel seats. The reel is fitted with a brass button ‘V’ check mechanism. The reel is finished in black or pewter anodize, with tortoise shell handles, brass and solid nickel silver fittings.


The Pike Master centre pin is built to the following specifications and variations:

REEL SIZE: 4 1/4″ & 4 1/2″ diameter
RATCHET: Button check
HAND: Left hand wind (Right hand by request)

All reels are supplied with a heavy cotton embroidered draw cord pouch and dropper bottle of Chris Lythe reel oil.


The Pike Master centre pin is not a limited edition reel and is still in production by Chris Lythe Centre Pins.

As of February 2021, my order books are full and therefore closed for a short period of time. Once current orders are full-filled, I look forward to taking orders again, hopefully in Autumn 2021.
