Padded thumb bar and optional flipping switch on some models


The thumb bar is solid and it has the added flipping switch option on the 8.3:1 models where you can hold the thumb bar down flip and release the thumb bar when the lure hits the water to engage the reel. That can make you a lot more efficient and quicker on the hookset when making a lot of pitches and flips in a day of fishing. The Super Duty features 11 ball bearings plus a zero-reverse one-way clutch for longer casts and stronger performance when locking down on a big bass.
