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 antireverse" 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 mantaining 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 aluminium 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 aluminium parts have been carefully polished, ultrasonically cleaned, buffed and provided with gold or silver anodizing. Elegant graphics are stamped onto reels using laser technologies and rendering the design indelible over time. Available in wide version.
