The Albacore “Two Speed” is nothing more than the natural technological evolution of the “One Speed” model from which it has inherited some particularly outstanding details that have never been put to use in any other two speed lever model reel. Take for example the “infinite anti-reverse” system or the right flange made as a single component through mechanical CNC processing and applied to all models. The system used for engaging the “Two Speed” utilizes a Two-Button gear change unit making gear changes more rapid, simple and intuitive. As with the one speed model is equipped with five protected stainless steel gear wheel and gears and a drag washer made from the latest carbon composite. These characteristics ensure long hours of fighting while maintaining sound braking characteristics and smooth reeling and eliminating the occurrence of stick-slip. All the parts have been machined from a bar of a special aluminum alloy specifically manufactured for marine environments, using CNC working processes and subject to rigorous dimensional checks.
