Extremely smooth cranking helically cut drive gear is the largest in Shimano reel history, and provides unbelievable power along with a high speed retrieve.
Because of the oversized sideplate and spool, Torsa is able to accommodate an extremely large drag washer in relation to the size of the reel. This washer, made of the same proven material found in Tiagra, provides an incredible range of drag pressures, while providing low startup inertia for an extremely smooth drag.
The ergonomic Power Grip provides comfort and reduces fatigue, while the extremely long handle shank increases torque. Also, by bending the shank at strategic locations, the grip moves closer to the reel to reduce wobble during fast retrieves.
