Alutecnos Single Speed 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 technicalaspects 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.
Particular attention is paid to processing cycles and the careful selection of the highest quality of raw materials and components available. The results in a technically perfect product. The special assembly technique permits all screws (made exclusively from stainless steel AISI 316) to be loosened even after long periods in harsh marine environments. The graphic are applied using computerized laser technology. Eight models are available from 12 to 80/130 lbs, in the right-hand and left-hand version. All of which equipped with a handy nylon carry. These technical characteristics and attention to every last detail combine to make the albacore reel a unique and reliable product. The carefully chosen simplicity and ease of operation makes for a unique and highly competitive product, perfect for the big-game angler willing to make a serious commitment to heir sport.

Alutecnos Two Speed Reels
The Albacore "Two Speed" is nothing more than the natural technological evolution of the "One Speed" model from which it has inherited some particularly outstanding details that have never been put to use in any other two speed lever model reel. Take for example the "infinite anti-reverse" system or the right flange made as a single component through mechanical CNC processing and applied to all models. The system used for engaging the "Two Speed" utilizes a Two-Button gear change unit making gear changes more rapid, simple and intuitive. As with the one speed model is equipped with five protected stainless steel gear wheel and gears and a drag washer made from the latest carbon composite. These characteristics ensure long hours of fighting while maintaining sound braking characteristics and smooth reeling and eliminating the occurrence of stick-slip.
All the parts have been machined from a bar of a special aluminum alloy specifically manufactured for marine environments, using CNC working processes and subject to rigorous dimensional checks. Particular attention is paid to careful selection of raw materials and components (all of the highest quality) resulting in the manufacture of a technically perfect product. All the aluminum parts have been carefully polished, ultrasonically cleaned, buffed and provided with gold anodizing. Elegant graphics are stamped onto reels using laser technologies and rendering the design indelible over time. The models in the 30, 50 and 80 lbs. Classes are available in normal and wide versions.

Alutecnos Gorilla Reels
Small, powerful, elegant and immediately recognizable, this is the synthesis of the new Albacore 12 Gorilla reel. It has been constructed with no arbor for ease of cast. A twin-drag that can be set over 40 lbs still guaranteeing free-spool, and a 4.4:1 ratio that proves to be perfect with this high power yet concise size. It makes it possible to jig and wait for the fish to hit and pull the prey quickly on board that otherwise with conventional reels would be very difficult if not impossible to catch. Expressly studied for extreme deep-jigging, it stands out not only for its powerful and functional performance, but also for its elegant look, silver anodizing, drag release button and red colored handle. Albacore 12 Gorilla reel, once more a "masterpiece for the art of fishing" by Alutecnos.
