ESP ONYX Big Pit/Surf Reel 


The ONYX Big Pit Reel is ESPs first venture into reel development and manufacture, and this reel has many distinctive features which make it an excellent reel for both carp fishing and as a surf reel.

For the beach angler, the slow oscillation of the spool , gives the reel an incredibly smooth line lay. This in turn helps with effortless long distance casting. Also, the shallow and ultra-shallow spools, lend themselves for use with braided lines.


Another great feature of this reel are the two different drag adjusters FD (Fine Drag for micro adjustment) and RL (Rapid Lockdown for free running to locked down in around half a turn). Another great feature is the quick fold handle for  rapid deployment and pack down, also allowing the handle to be folded in use. 

The stainless line clip incorporates a special moulded backing plate which has a slightly raised 'cleat' beneath the clip which the lines click over for security without any damage to the mono. This incorporates machined long life gearing with a fast retrieve ratio. The slow oscillation further improves line lay so they cast like a dream. The final touch is the muted classic black cosmetics and wooden handle, meaning these reels look the part on any set up. 


  • Machined, anodised long cast taper spools. Shallow - for 300m of 15lb (0.37mm) and Ultra Shallow - for 300m of 12lb (0.32mm). So, three reels can be filled from a 1000m bulk spool of mono - no backing required.
  • Slow Oscillation ensures exceptionally smooth line lay which helps distance casting and accuracy.
  • Two interchangeable drag adjusters - the reel can be used with either the FD (fine drag) adjuster for small incremental changes in resistance, or the RL (rapid lock down) which allows quick adjustment from low resistance to locked down in around half a turn of the adjustment knob.
  • Quick fold handle - for speedy set up and pack down and also allows the handle to be folded for snug rod set ups.
  • Stainless steel line clip for secure damage free clipping up.
  • 7 + 1 stainless bearings, machined gears and a 4.3:1 gear ratio for fast retrieve (approx 1m per rotation of the reel handle)
  • Rotor brake.
  • Front drag grit guard.
  • Easily accessible large anti-reverse lever.
  • Stylish matte black finish with subtle red decals.
