These no-nonsense high speed reels have all of the features needed to fish long and hard. The Qualia Q12HS-1 and Q16HS-1 High Speed Single-Speed Reels are built for strength, durability and to excel in extreme conditions. These reels are equally suited to lazy days on glassy water.
The Qualia Q12HS-1 and Q16HS-1 Reel frames are precision cut from solid aircraft grade aluminum and machine-fit to cold forged aluminum side plates. The spool is CNC machined from billet aluminum, and anodized. The six (6) Nano-treated Tenex spool bearings are 10 times more corrosion resistant than regular stainless steel bearings.
Qualia Q12HS-1 and Q16HS-1 High Speed Single-Speed Reels are manufactured using high quality aircraft aluminum, 404 stainless steel that is heat treated and in addition treated with two processes to control electrolysis, provide corrosion protection for the stainless steel gears, shafts, and fasteners. Every screw, (stainless) spring, lever and part are made of material chosen for the best combination of strength and salt water resistance. These reels have a well earned reputation for extreme reliability.
