In two ways, a 14% weight reduction over the previous model in conjunction with redesign has vastly improved the balance, making the quick response reel even sharper. In the hand you really notice this difference, especially when fishing with the reel all day. For constant or delicate fishing, such as light rock, street or pellet waggler the increased sharpness is obvious, the reel performs like an extension of your arm.
The second benefit to the new Magnumlite rotor is the increase in rigidity, a whopping 30% increase! In this case the weight loss hasn't resulted in weaker, you can see from the diagrams below when under extreme pressure the rotor stands strong so you can be confident, no matter your fishing situation reels with the new MGL will never let you down.
The new design of the Magnumlite Rotor produces unprecedented light rotation. The rotor profi le, which was previously symmetrical, is now asymmetrical. The bail arm mechanism, which was previously situated on the same side as the line roller, has been moved to the opposite side. This improves balance and combined with a lightweight line roller, titan bail and optimum arrangement of rotor thickness, a
14% saving in rotation inertia has been achieved increasing sensitivity to previously unreached levels.
Evolution of the rotor design not only contributes to low inertia and sensitivity. The rotor rigidity on line roller side is also an important factor, which can effect drag performance. The newly developed Magnumlite Rotor offers excellent rigidity with up to 30% less defl ection under maximum pressure. See the benefits for yourself on the Vanquish FA and Stradic Ci4+ FB
