Of black anodized aluminium the XLB’s formidable brake package is well enclosed, at the heart of which is a solid carbon, stainless steel and Teflon disc trio. It operates smoothly even on those scary occasions when a fish pulls your rod down to a horizontal level and your backing is leaving in an ever increasing speed towards the horizon and the only thing that you can do is tighten your brake click by click and hope that it will stop before something bad happens.
The line capacity of these reels will definitely give you some extra time before it happens. When loaded with our thin diameter Dacspun backing, you have a reel to fight a large Pacific sailfish or a colossal jungle tarpon. These reels balance nicely any proper size double hander, but they are just as well at home when attached to one of those ten or twelve plus weight single hand rods needed to fight saltwater leviathans. Needless to say the capacity should be sufficient for every salmon angler even when using the longest Spey lines available.
