With a double handed pick up to ensure smoothness of control, this reel features an on/off ratchet on the rear of the spool to adjust spool tension and to prevent the spool from running freely when required. The clutch system is incredibly easy to operate and can be adjusted with a simple twist of the knob in the centre of the reel. The spool itself is constructed from one piece of machine cut aluminium and is set in a one piece machine cut aluminium frame. The Okuma Sheffield Centrepin is supplied with its own neoprene reel pouch to ensure its protection both in storage and in transit.
