New kit

from Pre­ston, Ry­obi & more

Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

NOT so very long ago Ry­obi pro­duced a cult-sta­tus match fish­ing reel – the closed-face Master­match CF1 was the an­gling con­nois­seur’s choice for all stick float and run­ning wa­ter wag­gler work.

Th­ese new Ry­obi fixed-spool Slam NCRT mod­els in 3000, 4000, and 5000 carry on that tra­di­tion, but with a body, side plate, ro­tor and bail-arm sys­tem made from an ad­vanced ti­ta­nium com­pos­ite ma­te­rial that is 20 per cent lighter yet 40 per cent stronger than graphite.

This gives the reels im­mense strength com­bined with a cool mod­ern look and feel.

In­ter­nal fea­tures in­clude a 5.1:1 gear ra­tio, smooth run­ning six ball-bear­ing sys­tem, plus one in­fi­nite anti-re­verse bear­ing and a pre­cisely set­ting multi-disk car­bon front drag.

The main shaft sys­tem is pre­ci­sion engi­neered from ti­ta­nium al­loy, which should give th­ese reels a long and trou­ble-free life.

Price: £129.99
