Okuma Product Development Manager John Bretza talks us through getting our Andros leverdrag Cast Control all set up.
CFR (Cyclonic Flow Rotor) Cyclonic Flow Rotor (CFR) was designed to create “cyclonic” airflow, which significantly increases air flow through the ported rotor. This thoroughly tested design allows for a much faster drying time if the reel becomes wet, minimizing corrosion possibility through out the reel. CFR also creates a lighter-weight and a more rigid rotor which reduces the flex and rotational coherence and creates a more precise mechanical operation.
