(4 customer reviews)



The Best-Selling Bowfishing Reel of All Time!

For over 40 years, the AMS Retriever® Pro has proven itself on literally millions of fish.

Always free-spooling.  No buttons to push, just draw and shoot!

The line is stacked in a bottle and freely deploys on the shot with zero-drag.

Retrieves 17” of line per crank.

Includes 25 yards of 200# test line, quick-release mount with integrated arrow quiver, trigger guard & EverGlide Safety Slide


WARNING – California Prop 65

SKU: N/A Category: Tag:


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.
Heavy-Duty Construction  Retrievers® can take the abuse of bowfishing and will last! Machined brass gears, stainless steel hardware and corrosion resistant housing ensure long life in fresh or saltwater.
EverGlide® Safety Slide®  Never tie your line to the tail of an arrow! Because safety is paramount, every Retriever® includes a slide tied to the end of the line. Always use the AMS EverGlide® Safety Slide® on every arrow, every time!
Quick-Release Quiver Mount  One t-screw controls 4-way movement of the reel and also allows for quick removal. An arrow quiver is also integrated into this mount.
No Buttons to Push  Unlike most other reels, Retrievers® are always ready to shoot. They’re always in free-spool mode. Just draw and shoot!
Trigger Guard  This rubber sleeve adds comfort to the trigger. But, more importantly, it’s a safety device to lengthen the trigger to prevent line from entangling with it.

Note: Line color may be orange, yellow or white depending on availability.

Made in the USA!

    AMS Retriever Pro. I Started bowfishing a year go and i choose the retriever and i never had any problems and i successfully got 2 dog fish and common carp with it and for someone who doesn’t see many rough fish swimming at the lake that pretty good and its easy to use

    Works Flawless! Couldn’t ask for a better reel. Had mine over a year and successfully reeled in some nice fish without any trouble at all. Took a few attempts to get used to the using the lever when reeling in but after a few quick seconds it’s a breeze. One thing that they should do is provide a list of bows that the AMS retriever reel is compatible with.
