It is so called because its weight is really low, but talking about lightness, in case of Zero, is not enough to build up a true image, for two reasons. First: in your hands the reel offers an extraordinary feeling, which goes beyond the cold scale data. Second: weight doesn’t count for anything, if it’s not associated with strength, resilience and capacity to easily bring line in, even under a strong pull.
While fishing, the Zero develops a unique mix of power and sensitivity; the first one does not need explanations, the second one inscribes the reel in the tackle system as a vital protagonist, because it conveys a lot of information to the user’s hand, while the absence of anti-reverse system enhances it. The irreplaceable characters behind of all these merits are reel’s body and rotor, created from carbon of the highest elasticity modulus, a material that offers same stiffness of aluminium, at 50% of its weight. In a very rigid body, the rotating elements work without constraints, as the structure that hosts them doesn’t deform under load. Handle and drive gear work in close relationship to delete plays and power losses.
