The new Tekota A has a great stealthy look and has a higher gear ratio compared to the previous model. Featuring a HAGANE S-Compact body, all models have the option of a line counter. The new smaller 300 and 400 sizes complete the range in 2020 and can be very useful also in FW trolling applications.
The HAGANE Body is produced from highrigidity aluminium or magnesium. This creates stiffness and impact resistance, while at the same time eliminating flexing of the body. The result is a rocksolid housing and support for the moving internal gearing and greater efficiency throughout the reel.
Shimano S ARB bearings are high corrosion resistant ARB ball bearings with an extra shield for improved protection against sand, salt or dust.
A compact body is a reel with a smaller body than usual, when you compare it to the line capacity of a equivalent model. For example: a size 3000 reel and a size C3000 reel have the same line capacity, but the C3000 has a smaller body.
E.I. Surface Treatment
E.I Surface treatment doubles the durability of the spool surface and gives less wear out by eliminating oxidation.
Super Free System
The Super Free bearing supported pinion gear system (SF) was designed to eliminate friction on the spool shaft during the cast. In standard baitcasting reels, when the clutch bar is pressed down, the pinion gear is freed and can actually drag on the spool shaft, creating friction and limiting the length of the cast. With SF, the pinion gear is supported by a ball bearing, and when the clutch is disengaged the pinion gear and spool shaft are kept in precise alignment. The result is zero friction on the spool shaft for increased freespool.
