AMS Retriever Pro Bowfishing Reel

Shipping calculated at checkout.


The AMS Retriever® Pro is the original bottle-style bow fishing reel – the design that has proven itself over 40 years! It’s durable, reliable and it performs! And, it’s simple to use. There are no buttons to push before the shot. Unlike most other reels, Retriever® reels are always ready to shoot. They’re always in free-spool mode. Just draw and shoot! Twenty-five (25) yards of Braided Dacron line is installed.

SIMPLE TO USE WITH NO BUTTONS TO PUSH: Unlike most other reels, Retriever® reels are always ready to shoot. They’re always in free-spool mode. Just draw and shoot!

ZERO DRAG: The line is stacked in a bottle rather than wound on a drum or spool so there is no drag on the line when it’s shot. The line freely spools out of the bottle on the shot and on the retrieve just stacks right back in. Just pull a lever with the index finger of your bow hand to retrieve.

HEAVY-DUTY CONSTRUCTION: Machined brass gears, stainless steel hardware, and corrosion-resistant housing ensure long life in fresh or saltwater. Retriever® reels are built to take the abuse of bow fishing and will stand the test of time!

FAST RETRIEVE: The Retriever® Pro has a gear ratio of 3:1 which allows 17” of line to be retrieved per crank. Twenty-five (25) yards of 200# test braided Dacron line is installed.

EVERGLIDE® SAFETY SLIDE®: Because safety is paramount, every Retriever® includes an AMS EverGlide® Safety Slide® tied to the end of the line. Never tie your line to the tail of an arrow (regardless of the reel used)! Use the AMS EverGlide® Safety Slide® on every arrow, every time!

4 IN 1 MOUNT: Mounts to bows sight holes with an integrated, 4-way adjustable mount that allows location adjustment of the reel forward, back, up, and down. It also conveniently functions as an arrow quiver and stores three tips and hex wrenches commonly needed in the field (patent pending).

TRIGGER GUARD: This rubber sleeve adds comfort to the trigger. But, more importantly, it’s a safety device to lengthen the trigger to prevent the line from entangling with it.

AMERICAN MADE in Stratford, Wisconsin USA

NOTE: Line color may vary between orange, yellow, or white

Special Orders

Special order items are always given priority treatment. However, for most of the special orders, you can expect a turnaround time of 4 to 8 weeks depending on manufacturer lead times and pandemic-related backorders.

Some bows such as custom target bows and some high end bows may take longer due to being made-to-order from the manufacturer directly. Besides bows and some high end products, all other special orders are on regular stocking basis. In addition some left handed products like high end target equipment can also experience unforseen delays due to manufacturer batch production.

We does its utmost to meet these timelines but if any unforeseen issues arise we will do our best to resolve them in an expeditious manner.

Please note that we cannot refund or cancel the order once the order is placed with the manufacturer.
