They have maintained their quality with the Interceptor IT60 Reel. This reel has a slim blade corrosion-resistant graphite body so it will last the rigors of sea fishing and the damage of the salt water cannot corrode the blade. In addition, the hydro block system blocks the water and foreign materials from entering the system, ensure the drag washers always perform at optimal levels. Also, the worm shaft transmission system strengthens the construction, letting the reel feel more rigid, making the line wind more straight and tight, working more smoothly.
For quick retrieving, the reel features a fast progressive drag as well as a quick set infinite anti-reverse system. When the anti-reverse option is switched on, you cannot roll the reel backwards this helps to avoid tangles in your line. This also allows you to control the tension on the line, preventing the tension from getting too tight and snapping the line completely and losing a fish. Switching off this function then allows you to strike and play the fish on the standard drag system. The fast progressive drag also makes the catching of fish effective with the self-hooking and anti-eject method.
The reel includes three ball bearings which offer an incredible reduction of friction between the moving parts, as well as one roller bearing within the roller, making this a very smooth and stable reel. The roller is also of even flow roller which utilizes a ball bearing under the line roller to maximize efficiency. This roller helps reduce line twists by freely rolling over the line roller without friction. Without this system, the line will naturally twist when drag is pulled.
The spool is made from machine cut aluminium and the reel comes with graphite spare spool that offers a back-up system or for carrying different line sizes. The TPE T-Shape handle knob, makes the rigid metal handle easy to grip when pulling in a fish.
So for an advanced, technology-packed reel for sea or specialist fishing, consider this IT60 Reel.
