Alutecnos Albacore Big Game Fishing Reels. The design and manufacturing process of albacore reel stems from a collaborative effort involving? all of the staff at Alutecnos. A commitment aimed not only at improving the technological content- but also at paying attention to design. The result is a product that stands out for aesthetic and technical aspects with outstanding attention to details. Such details include the infinite anti-reverse system applied to trolling reel for the first time. The frontal cam and lock release button for placing the automatically rearming gear lever into free or full mode. Five bearings and gears made from tempered stainless steel guarantee further resistance from corrosion. The system for anchoring the reel to the rod is robust and reliable using four anchor screws. The drag washer is made from the latest carbon composite and is appropriately protected to ensure smooth and consistent use during the most intense battles- the occurrence of stick-slip is virtually eliminated. All of the aluminum parts have been buffed ultrasonically cleaned- polished and anodized with a gold finish. All of the parts have been machined from bars using CNC working processes and are subjected to rigorous dimensional and quality control checks.
