METANIUM / Baitcasting reels

METANIUM

Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

Baitcasting reel for bass fishing. The micro-module gears reducing noise drastically offer a silky spooling touch and the new centrifugal braking system realizes improving cast distance, checking backlash or detailed braking adjustability, thus the basic performance of the reel was maintained at a high level. Operability was enhanced by weight saving such as use of lightweight magnesium alloy for body frame required precision and strength as well as use of carbon material for covers. Aluminum cutting parts and metallic painting express high reliability. The form fits comfortably in hand and each part is set for natural holding with fingers.
