Slammer III Questions

81 posts in this topic

All the reels are supposed to have the rotor brake as the ssv's did. The gears use the same technology as the cnc cut gears from the clash, which are machined brass in the slammer. Don't think they're using aluminium in the smaller reels like the clash, but i'm not 100% on that.

Slammer III uses an all CNC machined brass gearing system, pinion, osc. gear, main gear.  2 large Dura-Drag washers (first time in a spinning reel) for smooth drag + more max drag.  All metal body side plate and rotor, IPX6 (independently rated) sealed body and drag.   If you haven't already seen the ********** video in Montauk take a look https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GAtKpIy-5ns

Comes with an aluminum handle knob with a spare EVA knob.
