Polish fishing tackle manufacturer, Abramis, says that its new Mikado Airspace is the ‘reel of the future’.
Made from metal, it contains no graphite composite elements at all. The rotor and bail arm are manufactured from a specialist, extremely strong and damage-resistant aluminium alloy 7075 that also contains zinc, 1.5% copper and some silicon, iron, manganese, titanium and chromium.
The company says that another original idea in its design is the two-part construction of the rotor which makes it possible to improve precision and anodize them separately.
“What makes the reel a real innovation,” says Abramis,” Is the lack of screws on the outside of the reel, the lack of side body covers and an original build of the spool axis tip that combined makes the thickness of the reel body less than 12mm.
“The end result of the perforated rotor and spool construction, and the use of the aluminium alloy 7075, is an extremely stiff and strong – yet very light – reel.
“Furthermore, you can easily oil the main axis and the bearing without taking the reel apart.”
The reel will be among a number of new products on show on stand K31 at this year’s EFTTEX in Vienna, from June 14 to 16.
