As a big fish peels line off a reel the laws of physics dictate that even without touching the drag lever the drag increases due to the progressive reduction in the diameter of line on the spool. With other offshore reel brands, once line is in the water, it is anyone's best guess as to what the real drag setting has become due to this phenomenon (regardless of whether an accurate initial drag setting was taken with a scale at the dock). Everol's system gives anglers a clear picture of what the effective drag has become, allowing anglers to actively "manage" their drag during the fight.
As for the drag mechanism itself, Everol incorporates a silky smooth, forced air cooled, multi-disc drag sytem. This system works much like a motorcycle clutch, floating on oversized springs and actuated by a large race plate. This drag configuration results in unparalleled smoothness and allows for the washers to wear evenly. The long lasting carbon fiber drag material sandwiched in between the stainless plates enables the drag to last for season after season.
Everol makes its drag disks, washers and gears bigger for reason. It certainly isn't to make the reels cheaper to manufacturer. It is to juice up the pulling power of our reels. Everol carbon fiber drag components are the identical materials that Ferrari uses for its brake systems.
No More Break Offs - NO MORE F'ing Excuses!!!
You have seen it a dozen times over. "Fish On!!!" The angler hits the drag lever and the fish instantlly breaks off. Why did happen? Sometimes an inexperienced or excited fisherman just puts too much heat on and the line breaking strength is exceeded. Sometimes it is not a newbie mistake. Hitting the piece of tape marking the correct drag setting is not so easy in the heat of battle. The good news is this should NEVER happen to you if you fish an Everol Special series. Our drag stop slides so easily you can adjust it with your pinky finger. But it will completely lock out the strongest man from exceeding the drag stop. So no more break offs!!!
Everol has been building top-quality, low maintenance fishing reels since the late 50's, and our reels are built with only the best anodized and stainless materials so as to be able to withstand the rigors of big-game fishing and of the insidious salt water environment. Everol's unique features, quality craftsmanship, and attractive pricing truly do make them the best value available in offshore reels today -bar none.
For those who have grown accustomed to a pre-set drag, Everol has introduced the stellar Waterproof Series. These reels feature an internally sealed disc drag which protects the double sided drag washers from the corrosive saltwater environment. These reels are very lightweight yet strong and ,like the Special Series, they are available in either right or left hand retrieve.
