The most recognizable change in the Speed Spool® is its frame design. The new frame is one-piece die-cast aluminum with easily removable palming graphite sideplates. The new Speed Spool® weighs only 7 ounces, mostly due to its new frame platform called LFS, which helps reduce the overall weight of the reel. The LFS design also increases the distance between the zirconia line guide, which gives anglers extreme distance on the cast. SSG U-spools are anodized aluminum. The SSG1S is machine forged, while all others are machined aluminum.
