A great addition to the range and the first venture into this line of products for this prestigious manufacturer. Over two years of development have gone into this and you can really tell once you handle it. One great feature 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 desirable feature is the quick fold handle, for rapid deployment and pack down and also allows the handle to be folded in use for super snug rod set ups.
The stainless line clip incorporates a special moulded backing plate which has a slightly raised ‘cleat’ beneath the clip which the lines clicks 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. And the final touch of muted classic black cosmetics and wooden handle makes these reels look the part on any set up.
All in all the perfect reel for modern day carp fishing applications.
Machined, anodised long cast taper spools. Shallow – for 300m of 15lb (0.37mm) and Ultra Shallow – for 300m of 12lb (0.33mm). So three reels can be filled from a 1,000m 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 (approximately 1m per rotation of the reel handle).
Front drag grit guard.
Easily accessible large anti-reverse lever.
Stylish matte black finish with subtle red decals.
