The 65GVCR has the rapid retrieve handle plate system. This can give you up to 30% increase in recovery rate using the smaller handle and still gives fish stopping 1:1 power in the larger outer handle. Vented design reduces weight and looks great. The venting also allows sand to be rinsed out easily in salt water while fishing. This reel is fitted with an on/off switch to engage the powerful drag system. The tri-star nut gives more than enough drag pressure to control large fish. The smooth clutch is a multi-plate design with polished brass plates combined with PTFE coated woven glass washer which can also withstand very high temperatures. A fish alert switch on the back side of the reel can be engaged when leaving the rod and reel unattended to warn you of a fish taking line. If you bait fish most of the time but occasionally like to throw out a lure this is the reel for you.
