The Cavalla Lever Drag reel is a compact-bodied machine built to handle the toughest of conditions. This reel is built with 6061-T6 machined aluminum frame and side plates. The rigid 1-piece frame continues around to the non-handle side plate. This rigid frame combined with a cold forged, type-II anodized machined aluminum spool give you a sleek and rugged weapon. The Cavalla reels feature a battle-proven carbonite drag system with Cal’s drag grease that puts out 24 to 34 pounds of drag at full. The 17.4 grade stainless steel main and pinion gear as well as the CRC: Corrosion Resistance Coating process make this reel virtually corrosion resistant. Add to that 4 corrosion-resistant stainless steel bearings and a silent retrieve system for complete smooth operation. Both the 5 and 12 size reels come in left and right hand retrieve and feature an on/off bait clicker. This reel is compact and comfortable, and features an Ergo Grip handle knob and anodized aluminum handle arm.
