The design and manufacturing process of Albacore reel stems from a collaborative effort involving all the staff at Alutecnos. A commitment aimed not only at improving the technological content, but also at paying attention to design. The result is a product that stands out for both aesthetic and technical excellence with outstanding attention to detail. Such detail includes the infinite "anti-reverse" system employed in a trolling reel for the first time.
The frontal cam and lock release button for placing the automatically re-arming gear lever into "free" or "full" mode. Five bearings and gears made from tempered stainless steel guarantee further resistance from corrosion. The system for anchoring the reel to the rod is robust and reliable using four anchor screws. The drag washer is made from the latest carbon composite and is appropriately protected to ensure smooth and consistent use during the most intense battles, the occurrence of "stick-slip" is virtually eliminated.
All of the aluminium parts have been buffed ultrasonically cleaned, polished and anodized to the respective colour finish. All of the parts have been machined from bar stock alloy using CNC working processes and are subjected to rigorous dimensional specification control checks. Particular attention is paid to processing cycles and the careful selection of the highest quality of raw materials and components available. The result is a technically perfect product made to last a lifetime of use in the marine environment.
