We don't polish our reels. No buff outs or cover-ups. You can see the witness marks and quality machining. It's more difficult, and takes more time, but it's worth it.
Making a positive frame-to-spool connection is essential. Our "power flower" design feature locks both together creating a bomb-proof fit.
A single solid is stronger than two pieces, and by eliminating the screws you've eliminated the corrosion points.
Unlike many manufacturers whose counterbalance is merely cosmetic, we've made the two pieces the same weight to achieve true balance in the spool.
Increased rigidity, strength, and reduced lateral flex. With the reel and spool together, you get virtually no lateral flex when you push/pull the two. The means the reel tracks truer and it eliminates the spool wobbling in high-speed runs.
A cassette comprised of Rulon® and precision stamped stainless steel discs is employed in all models. With multi-disc drag, you are applying breaking pressure and heat dispersion over several surfaces, virtually eliminating start up inertia and stick slip problems.
Keep those hooks tucked into the arbor of the reel and out of the way of your hands.
Press-fit into the spool so it won't fall out, the nut is easily removed with or without gloves.
