That’s a lot of spec right! For a reel that costs just under £320 you would expect a long list of specs, but more importantly you would want those specs to mean something. So lets show you a few of these features.
the Pro-Ti is a powerhouse in more ways than one; It can cast most weights needed for the UK market, it has a drag force that is hard to beat. It is very light for an all aluminium construction, it looks fantastic and is a joy to hold….. Did I mention its also saltwater proof!
For a flagship reel it does not disappoint, I do not think it is missing any features that you would expect from a reel of this caliber. Reliability, Features and Looks; this reel has them all.
