Albacore One-Speed Alutecnos
The design and manufacturing process of Albacore reel stems from a collaborative effort involving all of the staff at Alutecnos. A commitent aimed not only at improving the technological content, but also at paying attention to design. The result is a product that stands out for aesthetic and technical aspects with outstanding attention to details. Such details include the infinite "antireverse" system applied to trolling reel for the first time. The frontal cam and lock release button for placing the automatically rearming 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 appropiately 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 with a gold finish. All of the parts have been machined from bars using CNC working processes and are subjected to rigoroud dimensional and quality control checks.
Particular attention is paid to processing cycles and the careful selection of the highest quality of raw materials and components available. The results in a technically perfect product. The special assembly technique permits all screws (made exclusively from stainless steel AISI 316) to be looshed even after long periods in harsh marine environments.
The graphic are applied using computerised laser technology. Eleven models are available from 12 to 80/130 lbs, in the right-hand and left-hand version. All of which equipped with a handy nylon carry. These technical characteristics and attention to every last detail combine to make the Albacore reel a unique and reliable product.
