The Momentum LT is the strongest and most dependable big game fly reel on the water today. The drag system is based on carbon fiber technology, chosen because of its stiffness, strength, heat resistance, shock-dampening capabilities, and infinite fatigue resistance. The carbon fiber used in the Momentum LT drag system is STRONG, tolerating 700ksi (700,000 pounds of force per square inch) which is more than ten times the tensile strength of the aluminum frame that carries it. In fact, the carbon fiber used in the reel is also vastly stronger than both steel and titanium! The 6.3 square inches of effective drag surface yields three times the stopping power of every competitive reel tested. A triple redundancy drag provides three backup systems to ensure dependability under the most demanding fishing conditions, while features like titanium drag components, a quick-release locking spool, and water shedding grooves on the palming rim give you the ultimate big fish fly reel.
