Product Description

 

The RB1 has been meticulously designed and tested. Although specifically developed for salmon fishing, the reel is completely saltwater proof and more than capable of handling large salt water quarry.
The initial prototype was designed and tested in collaboration with Lancaster University Engineering Department, where dozens of drag materials were tested under extreme conditions in order to select the compound with the highest performance. The chosen compound, coupled with titanium disks, not only withstands temperatures in excess of 200°C but provides a silky smooth drag with virtually no stick-slip.
 Machined from solid block aerospace grade 6082 aluminium, hard anodised to MIL Spec 8625 Type 3, class 2
 Precipitation hardened and pacified 17-4 stainless steel shaft and 316 stainless steel components
 High performance composite drag material coupled with large titanium disks, producing up to 18lbs of drag force
 Heat generated during a run is dissipated through the ported aluminium spool to prevent overheating
 Titanium click and pawl system with optional click check
 Easily interchangeable between left and right hand wind requiring no tools
 Zero backlash anti-reverse system with large exposed palming rim
 Reverse tapered handle to prevent line snagging when casting
 Line Capacity: 300m 30lbs Dacron +AFS shooting head or 500m 50lbs gel spun +WF12 TT
 Heavy duty needle clutch bearing with a dynamic load rating of over 350kg
 Fully sealed clutch and bearing arrangement with Viton O-rings
 Weight 365grams/12.9oz
