Is that the one almost $500?

A program within an electric circuit analyzes when and how much braking to apply. The cast is analyzed every 1/1000of a second. There are eight preset patterns which you adjust like you were adjusting an external magnetic controll. As in all casting reels there is also a cast controll "friction" knob. With conventional reels, max spool RPM is around 20,000. With this system, spool RPM jumps up to 30,000.
I've cast this reel and the results are amazing. The distance that extra 10,000RPM generate is impressive. I found in casting and pitching I prefered a setting which required a little thumb. You can't teach an old dog new tricks. I was getting 100' + casts with a 3/8oz. dummy plug on a 6'6" rod and a roll cast!
Dartanium is a material which offers long life and a wide range of settings. Since Dartanium came out it has proven itself a very good drag material.
