All the durability, style and performance of the Gunnison series are present in this new reel. It is fully machined from barstock aluminum and features an advanced space-age disc-drag system that provides accurate, easily controlled, repeatable settings. The drag offers virtually no start-up friction to keep lighter tippets safe. The spool can be quickly removed and changed, and the reel is easily converted from right- to left-hand retrieve. The exposed outside rim of the spool allows easy palming for additional drag control, and the large-arbor construction facilitates a faster retrieve. The design offers both an incoming and outgoing click, and the ventilated pattern lightens the reel significantly.
