REELS

Emiliano Tenerelli

X-RIDE

SURF

Not only Trabucco top of the range, but world class reels! X-Ride is a series specially developed for surf casting around a large long cast spool and limited weight to perfectly match nowadays lighter surf rods. The graphite body is particularly thin and elegant, while the spool, made from anodized aluminium, is fitted on to a polymer frame which avoids line slipping down, thus eliminating tangle risks, specially when using fine lines. The aluminium handle is long and swept; gears rotation is assisted by 13 ball bearings, including the large one which drives the infinite anti-reverse. Drag is sealed to avoid salt and sand getting in. Thanks to worm shaft, the line lay is absolutely perfect. The tubular bail is made from aluminium, and is quite strong and light at the same time. The whole reel is protected against corrosion, and ball bearings are double shielded to prevent salt and sand damaging their function. The new size 6500 is openly dedicated to beach legering, eventually with fine mono or braided lines, a fishing style developed by pleasure anglers which today is adopted by the best surf match anglers in the whole Mediterranean. Size 8000 is oriented to light surf, with light weight and a wide, tapered spool (7 cm diameter and 4 cm height), which enables impressive casts even with light leads such as 50 or 75 grams. The size 10000 is destined to proper surf casting, with a 25% higher spool to obtain a wider angle in lines distribution, which means that friction between line coils is reduced during the cast. All reels are equipped with cast lock system to avoid incidental closure, so that the bail arm can be closed manually only.

The 8000 and 10000 spools differ in length. The 10000 is recommended in case thick lines are spooled, because the coils form a wider angle.

On left, the standard ball bearings are open to get salt within balls. On right, the shielded version from X-Ride series is safe from aggressive agents.
