The Tesoro star drag reels were designed with the latest technology and insight from the leading fishermen in the industry. The Tesoro features 6061-T6 machined aluminum frame, side plates, and spool as well as our MSS: Mechanical Stabilizing System for a zero flex platform keeping all key components aligned, and running smoothly. With its 17-4 grade, self lubricating, stainless steel helical cut gearing, and multi-disc Carbonite drag system bathed in Cal’s drag grease, this reel runs silent and smooth. The key features on the Tesoro star drag reel include the CRC: Corrosion-Resistant Coating process to help defend against any corrosion build up. The Tesoro features an aluminum swept handle that reduces wobble while cranking and an ergo grip soft touch handle knob for all day cranking.
