Advanced metal alloys and high modulus carbon: only handle’s knob is made from traditional material! But high grade materials can do little if there isn’t the right technology to draw the best from them, and in this case plenty of it has been employed. Just a couple of handle turns, with a fighting beast at the other end of your line, will let you feel the extreme power which is hidden inside your Invictus.
The Invictus reel is just the last in time of this state of the art projects and is featuring many technological innovations. The hybrid structure is made of aluminium and graphite to maximize the benefits from both materials: the body is made of aluminium, so really really stiff. For this reason all the gears are working in the perfect position and will do it for years. The rotor, made of carbon, is suffering less solicitations and so it is made of lighter material. The rotor is equipped with a thick hollow bail arm, super strong and impossible to deform.
Drags are made of stainless steel and carbon discs and are sealed, to prevent dirty and salt to enter between the discs. The handle too is machined from a single piece of aluminum. 9+1 stainless steel double shielded bearings make this reel really smooth. The Invictus has a ratio of 5.2:1 and it is suitable for bolo and waggler fishing in sizes 2500 and 4000, while it is perfect for spinning and feeder fishing in sizes 4000 and 5000. The gears have been designed to bear thousands and thousands of casts and retrieves.
La bobina ad alta capacità ha dei solchi sul fondo che servono all’avvio dell’ordinato imbobinamento; per questo l’etichetta nella gola deve sempre essere rimossa!
The spare spool has a reduced capacity to ease thin line’s loading. The central rubber band is there to avoid braided line’s slipping under extreme pulls.
The spool’s lip is remarkably thin and “V” shaped to minimize line friction during the cast and to increase distances and accuracy (V Spool Design).
The ultra-thin grooves we can see through a lens prove that the spool has actually been machined from a solid piece of aluminium for higher strength.
All ball bearings are sealed on both sides to keep grease inside and avoid water, sand and salt getting in and possibly affecting their rotation.
The Invictus rotor is made from high modulus carbon, the stiffest and lightest among the materials which can bear enormous load and stress. Its essential design is not only a fantastic fashion detail, but plays an important role on balance and rotation smoothness points of view. As a matter of fact, its lightness pushes back the reel’s barycentre, while reducing the energy needed to cause the rotation. The computer drew it asymmetric in order to counterbalance the bail’s weight, thus optimizing the rotation’s smoothness of the whole reel.
The reel’s structure is an hi-tech “full metal”, as both body and side cover are made from aluminium to offer the best possible stiffness and durability.
On each side of the body there are two steel plates, which are destined to raise stiffness along handle axis. The positive effect is easily felt during a fish fight.
