Lightweight bait finesse reel compatible with salt by adopting aluminum frame

New and next generation salt compatible bait finesse reels are now available. 

It weighs 141g, and is equipped with a Magtrax III brake system that can increase the number of magnets according to user preference.

Its lightness improves the sensitivity and characteristics of the rod to be mounted in different dimensions.

By bus, bait finesse, minnow twitching, and shad retrieval.

SW can handle from bait finesse to boat agging, which has become popular in recent years.

Explanation of how to add a brake magnet

REVO ALC-BF7 Recommended magnet setting and thread winding amount

・ After setting the magnet, set the dial to the MAX position and gradually set it weakly. There are some cases that cannot be returned due to backlash.
・ When using a thread thinner than the 8lb line, set the brake to a higher level. Backlash may cause a gap between the spool and the frame.
・ Regarding the recommended thread winding amount, refer to the handle rotation speed at the time of thread winding.
-Set the mechanical brake so that there is no play beside the spool. If the thread floats, lightly tighten it.

Detail

  • X-CRAFTIC frame

    X-CRAFTIC frame

    The aluminum frame is designed to the limit while reducing the strength without reducing the strength. Material setting considering tough use in salt.

  • C6 side plate

    C6 side plate

    Unique new material C6 carbon is an engineering plastic reinforced with carbon fiber, whose rigidity is comparable to magnesium. The use of this material has resulted in significant weight savings without sacrificing strength and durability.

  • Magtrax III brake system

    Magtrax III brake system

    A unit with five magnet pockets for five 3mm thickness and five for 1.5mm thickness is adopted. Fine adjustment is possible according to the casting characteristics of the user and the condition of the rod. It is possible to cope with the air resistance of various types of light lures, which has progressed in recent years. The standard comes with three 3mm pieces, two other 3mm pieces and five 1.5mm pieces.

  • Soft clutch

    Soft clutch

    The clutch mechanism was reviewed from the ground up to realize a soft clutch with good operating performance. The degree of fatigue due to repeated operations of the day can be reduced.

  • Ultra-light duralumin, super lightweight φ32mm spool

    Ultra-light duralumin, super lightweight φ32mm spool

    The weight of the spool that determines the performance of the bait finesse. The spool became lighter by changing to φ32mm from φ33mm of the conventional LT installation. Approximately 6.3 g without bearings and pins. The thorough weight reduction of the spool, which does not incorporate extra mechanisms while analyzing the strength, achieved synergistic effects with the Magtrax brakes and achieved a different dimension of cast feel and casting performance.

  • Recessed reel foot

    Recessed reel foot

    The split reel foot pushes down the spool, making it even more low-profile. Height from the foot is about 38mm. Provides comfortable palming performance.

  • Carbon Matrix Drag & Drag Clicker

    Carbon Matrix Drag & Drag Clicker

    Abu Garcia’s proprietary carbon matrix drag washer enables a higher drag force while maintaining smooth performance over a wide range. By introducing the clicker, it is possible to grasp the speed drawn from the drag and exchange while being aware of the line break.

  • Flat eva knob
