OKUMA REEL METALOID M-55S 7B/B
Metaloid features an aluminum frame, side plate and rotor for superior rigidity and strength, dramatically improving longevity when fishing high-strength braided lines under high drag pressures. Within the aluminum body, a three-piece carbon fiber Mechanical Stabilization System isolates the aluminum body from the stainless steel drive system. Three components of the Mechanical Stabilization System include two hold plates on each side of the body and a one-way clutch housing at the top of the body. All custom molded to the framing for exacting fit, they provide a solid anchor point for the main gear, bearings and spool shaft while completely isolating stainless internal parts from the aluminum frame. The MSS system adds strength, maintains critical alignment of internal parts, and working in conjunction with the Okuma CRC (Corrosion Resistant Coating) process, eliminates internal corrosion due to contact between dissimilar metals.
