Opus-1 / Spinning reel

Opus-1
Opus-1

Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

This spinning reel is used mainly for bass fishing in either fresh or saltwater. 93% of all the parts are made of metal, resulting in high strength and corrosion resistance. More than 95% of all the parts are from Japanese domestic production, featuring high-quality fabrication and finishing by craftsmen. The drag knob has a metal bridge that functions as both guard and lever, insuring secure handling when wearing gloves. All components have been designed with both functionality and ergonomics in mind. The result is pure beauty in the form of a highly functional tool.
