The premium 8-bearing spinning reel leaves no doubt about smoothness with the very first turn of its handle. And its Zero-Reverse one-way clutch bearing affords rock-solid hooksets with no back slop of the handle. Strength and durability are a given, thanks to the reel's durable stainless steel main shaft and quality solid brass pinion gear. The graphite body and sidecover are durable and lightweight. The rod is built on a premium IM6 graphite blank. Rod guides are durable stainless steel frames with polished stainless steel inserts.
