The Tesoro features 6061-T6 machined aluminum frame, side plates, and spool as well as our MSS: Mechanical Stabilizing System for a zero flex platform keeping all key components aligned, and running smoothly. With its 17-4 grade, self lubricating, stainless steel helical cut gearing, and multi-disc Carbonite drag system bathed in Cal’s drag grease, this reel runs silent and smooth.

All three sizes contain five total corrosion resistant bearings that are bathed in TSI oil for the ultimate in free spool. The Carbonite drag system puts out a fish stopping 22lbs of drag. All sizes of the Tesoro feature a high speed 6.2:1 gear ratio and 46” of line retrieve per turn of the handle.
