Pocket-milled spool face with integrated counterbalance increases strength and stiffness while reducing weight. Maintenance-free conical drag utilizes two cone-shaped elements matched together for a precise fit. This system completely seals the drag from the effects of moisture, salt and grit. Because the mass of the drag elements is centralized, the reel is more responsive to lighter drag settings. The average radius of the contact surface is also much smaller than a disc-shaped drag, eliminating startup torque. The zero-lash feature delivers instant line engagement. Stainless steel clutch is impervious to corrosion. A 3X torque rating safety factor ensures an unlimited service life. Redesigned drag knob for better grip. Hard Alox finish resists scratches and the effects of saltwater. Available: LS1 ALOX II, LS1.5 ALOX II, LS2 ALOX II, LS3 ALOX II, LS3X ALOX II, LS3.5 ALOX II, LS3.5X ALOX II, LS4 R ALOX II.
