CONTROL

Now you can actively control the fish and intuitively adjust braking pressure through the handles as quickly as thinking about it. This system gives the angler the upper hand and the possibility to land fish increases significantly. Those who use the Control understand this advantage and have difficulty going back to “normal” reels.

You use the brake handle in much the same way as the foot brake in a car and it’s just as simple and easy to operate!

At first glance the Control looks like a conventional anti-reverse fly reel. When the fish runs against the brake, the handle is stationary. This is where the similarity ends. A traditional anti-reverse reel does not employ a winding force which exceeds brake setting. Control has a unique “power converter” which automatically increases brake force when winding in and immediately restores level braking power when you stop winding . By combining maximum winding force with the ability to immediately level-off when a fish jumps or makes a sudden run, the Control minimizes the risk of tippet or rod failure and increases the chance to master the fish.

The “power converter” also has a built-in power limit which prevents excessive force. In other words, if you’re surprised by an unpredictable fish in the heat of battle, the power converter will not lock-up. While we cannot guarantee that you will land your dream fish, we can guarantee you will not lose it due to reel failure!

How it works: The “stacked” multi-disc braking system is a refinement of our previous system which proved to be very reliable in extreme situations. Control features two separate opportunities to influence the brake. The first is turning the brake knob which captures the min-max range within one revolution. Secondly, the user’s manual includes instructions for custom-configuration of the braking system so that you may further fine-tune to your personal preferences.

The big news is the performance while fighting large fish. The Control’s unique brake can be influenced by the handle by moving the lever forward or backward to increase the brake. When you release the handle the brake instantly returns to the mode set on the brake knob. This means the fighting brake is variable and the distance between min-max is about 1.5 cm.This brake is very easy to gauge by pulling against a gradually increasing counterforce.

When using the Control for the first time, we recommend that you have someone help you test the reel settings and function by pulling the line at different speeds while you apply brake pressure with the handle. This simple test will allow you to quickly “learn the feel” of the Control reel’s unique functions. Additionally, try to place your palm against the reel body for support when you brake for added stability – just like when your heel is resting on the floor when you brake the car.

This braking system instantly responds to your commands – and that’s just the way it is supposed be when you’re in Control!

Other features:
– Control features the handle on the housing side which eliminates the risk of finger injury against rotating the spool. Some saltwater rockets can rush at speeds of nearly 100km per hr.

– Control is completely sealed and waterproof to 100m, as the placement of the handle on the on housing-side requires only two moving seals thus minimizing unnecessary internal friction.

– Like wise, the placement of the handle makes for swift and easy spool or direction change – the spool being the only loose part. Typically, it’s complicated and time consuming to replace the spool on most anti-reverse reels, but switching retrieve can be easily performed using the step-by-step description in the manual.

– Furthermore, the general mechanical feeling is solid, balanced and smooth. Simply winding the handle is almost addictive! Utilizing our industry expertise, we began to design and manufacture large reels for large fish 25 years ago. The Control raises the bar yet again and even changes the view of how this type of reel should be designed and constructed.

– We’ve added a few components to the proven technology we created for the L5W series. That is how we approach our technological design; with few components that are individually strong and have more than one function. The result is a sophisticated and reliable product with a distinctly industrial mindset.
