Albacore Two Speed

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, never put to use in any other two speed lever model reel. “Infinite antireverse” system, right flange (made as a single component through mechanical cnc processing and applied to all models), two-button gear change (unit making gear changes more rapid, simple and intuitive). The “two speed” model is equipped with five protected stainless steel ball bearings, a tempered stailess 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, smooth reeling and eliminating the occurrence of stick-slip. All the parts have been machined from bars of a special aluminium alloy specifically manufactured for marine environments, using cnc working processes and subjected 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 aluminium parts have been carefully polished, ultrasonically cleaned, buffed and provided with 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 version while 130 lbs class is available in normal version only. All models available in right hand and left hand version.
