Updated for 2022 the Big Y General has untaken a complete overhaul. We use the same proven 6061 T6 aluminum (yes the same stuff they use to build space ships) for the frame, spool, reel seat, and drag housing. This ensures a drop, tumble down a rock face, or if it is accidentally left on top of the car as you drive off, won't result in a broken reel ruining the rest of the day. A full caged frame adds durability and protection to the spool and frame, while keeping those pesky mono lines or ultra thin euro nymph lines from "hopping" out the frame. Finally the drag system: An updating housing cover makes the drag system as sealed as physically possible when you have moving components, keeping sand and saltwater out of the drag. The drags itself now offers a robust 6 disc system in the 5/6 and 7/8 models, while the 9/10 offers 7 discs. A combination of stainless steel, nano carbon, and cork/Teflon (heat dispersion) make them capable of putting the breaks on any fish you hook, while making micro adjustments throughout the day especially easy.
