Our new MARK V Salmon reel is the latest refinement in the evolution of our MARK series reels. New is our totally sealed Carbon Fiber drag system. Our system incorporates two proprietary seals operating on the rotating shaft; a primary and secondary seal to ensure a truly sealed drag chamber. The spool rides on two sets of precision stainless steel radial ball bearings and two sets of precision stainless steel axial ball bearings for super smooth operation. We incorporated a strong gear and pawl drag to help control spool overrun at low disc drag settings and to provide a loud audible click on both incoming and outgoing spool operation. Further design refinements resulted in a weight reduction of 20% as compared to its predecessor the MARK IV Salmon reel. All MARK V reels feature a solid side plate and spool for a more classic look, and all models are anodized Silver and Black as our standard color combination. Finally we lubricate the MARK V with special oils and grease to operate trouble free in sub-freezing temperatures for extreme winter salmon and steelhead fishing. Production is limited and reels are available factory direct only.
