Machined and anodized aluminum body and sideplates. Lightweight forged aluminum spool. Stainless steel main and pinion gear. Live spindle with free floating spool. Versa-Drag system with HT-100 washers. 7 sealed stainless steel ball bearings. Instant anti-reverse bearing with silent back up ratchet. Three position adjustable bait clicker. Switchblade harness lugs on 40 size only. The TORQUE star drag comes from the factory with a 6.0:1 gear ratio for rapid line retrieve. However you may find the need for a lower gear ratio in certain fishing situations, for example: bottom fishing where power is more important than speed. For these situations we offer our Versa-Gear system. With this system you can easily purchase and install a 5.4:1 or 4.8:1 ratio.
