The unique lines, the sleek, thin body design and the striking cosmetics accelerate Matrix light years ahead of competitive offerings. Turn the handle to feel the exceptional smoothness thanks to a combination of ten stainless steel bearings, precision-machined gears and a finely balanced rotor. The machined aluminum spool is deep anodized not once but twice for double protection against nicks, cuts and the elements. Unlimited Anti-Reverse™ (UAR) prevents any backward movement in the handle or rotor for improved sensitivity and rock solid hook-sets. The aluminum handle is precision machined and balanced to eliminate rotor wobble when retrieving at speed. Matrix reels also feature Resist Twist™ Line Rollers which help minimize line twist. And finally, when you hook into that fish of a lifetime with your Matrix, the wide range front drag with multi-stack drag washers stands ready to perform with excellence and bring your trophy to net.
