Imagine that you are on the river bank, casting to a fish, shivering in readiness for the take. Suddenly you can feel your line stretching, your rod bends and the energy from the fish surges through your tackle. You are into the fight, which is holding you transfixed in the moment.

This is where SAB comes into play. The SAB reduces the required start up inertia by overcoming the breakaway friction as the reel spool begins to spin.

When the fish pulls out line the fly rod bends and what actually happens is that the line, leader and rod area storing this energy. The technical revelation in the SAB system has the ability to store part of the fish-generated energy in the reel system – for the first time ever brake away fraction is zero. Shock tippet is now actually built in to the reel.

The system will level out shockwaves during a take or fight, such as those from jumping and head shaking of the fish. This invention allows you to experience more pleasure, through the use of lighter tackle, less snapped leaders, and surely more landed fish.
