It just works. Time after time!
H5D is of course completely sealed according to the Danielsson standard. The design is tested in a pressure chamber for optimum lockout properties against water and dirt. In principle, you can use and abuse this reel and it just works … time after time.
This is why the design is so popular among guides whose very livelihood depends upon their equipment. For the recreational angler, it will exceed expectations. Take on your dream trip and know with complete certainty and confidence that it will function as it is supposed to.
All components of the reel are well proportioned to each other, there are no weak links. Every detail is carefully designed for maximum reliability and the result is a piece of equipment that lasts a lifetime. For example, we lock the spool with a clamp coupling that is common in industrial applications. It is an extremely reliable locking mechanism that never lets go.
To remove, just unscrew the lock knob with a few turns, lift and twist the spool triangle. As the lock knob does not need to be removed, there is no risk that any foreign material can enter the mechanism. This is an elegant solution that we alone offer!
