Alutecnos Veloce 12 Reel

With a fast 6.2:1 retrieve, the Veloce 12 is perfect for jigging tuna
Salt Water Sportsman

Big-game anglers have another weapon for tackling tuna and billfish; Alutecnos has introduced its Veloce 12 reel. With a fast 6.2:1 retrieve, the Veloce 12 is perfect for jigging tuna, as it can handle 500 yards of 65-pound braided line or 600 yards of 20-pound monofilament. Boasting a compact profile and light weight at only 271⁄2 ounces, the reel offers an ergonomic handle that pumps gears designed for maximum traction, has an infinite anti-reverse that eliminates backlashes and features an easy-access drag side plate. The single-disc brake can be set with 25 pounds of drag while still maintaining a guaranteed free-spool. Silver anodizing and stainless-steel ball bearings add to the saltwater-ready package. $631; www.alutecnos.com
