This one features a click-ball tension system which requires the angler to add any needed additional tension using the palm of their hand to slow the fish down on a run. It's lightweight design is perfect for long hikes into those hidden little brook trout streams. For the price it's hard to find a better quality reel. They're machined out of a strong and corrosion resistant aluminum used to make aircrafts. The brilliant color is created using an anodization process that is extremely durable.
