- Graphite Frame, Sideplate & Rotor
- Diecast Aluminum Spool
- Varispeed (except AX-ULSA)
Normal oscillation systems use a constant rotation of the oscillation gear that, when translated to the cam, provides an inconsistent spool speed. This results in line lay that stacks at either end of the spool. By using an oval oscillation gear, we are able to alter the speed of the oscillation cam to provide a consistent spool speed. This results in an even line lay that provides excellent castability and manageability.
- Super Stopper II (excluding AX-ULSA)
Super Stopper II anti-reverse uses a one-way bearing that eliminates backplay.This provides the angler with instant hooksetting power. In some reels, the Super Stopper II can be turned off to allow backreeling for special techniques and situations.
- Ported Handle Shank (except AX-ULSA)
This feature eliminates wobble during the retrieve by counter balancing the rotor to enhance sensitivity and smoothness. By using computer balancing, an approach similar to car tire balancing, we are able to redistribute the rotor weight to create smooth rotation and eliminate vibrations caused by the reel.
- Power Roller II (except AX-ULSA)
This is an oversized line roller that reduces twist from casting and retrieving and is enhanced with a tapered area on the support to help line get onto the roller quicker.
Power. Precision. Performance. Reels from our P3 lineup are all built using these targets. Power can be found in our ultra-smooth, efficient drivetrains. Precision comes from tight tolerances and excellent line lay. Performance is the end result of all of the features packed into the P3 reels.
