Super smooth


Another thing I’ve run into with ultra-lightweight designs has been a gritty feeling throughout the retrieve. It’s almost like the innards of some reels are sacrificed to make ’em weigh less. The Concept C2, however, has been butter-smooth throughout the entirety of my testing.

It has Ti-Armour Aluminum Gearing, which is designed to withstand extreme environmental wear and it also helps the reel maintain smooth performance for a longer period of time. It also has a nine ball bearing system with two high-spin corrosion resistant bearings, six stainless steel bearings and one dead stop anti-reverse bearing.

That’s the fancy way of explaining exactly how smooth this reel is. You can turn the reel handle hard one time and the spool will turn for much longer than many reels I’ve been testing recently.
