The video is a taste of what you could expect from a Svivlo reel – distance with smooth and controlled action and minimized risk of backlash. We’ve named our first reel “Genesis” as we know this is going to be a new beginning in baitcasting. The images are showing a prototype.
Svivlo is dedicated to providing a better baitcaster and remove the limits of legacy technology in order for you to release your full potential. You will be able to pre-order your very own Svivlo reel through Kickstarter so you can spend more time catching fish.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I still need the centrifugal brake?
No! The centrifugal brake drastically shortens cast distance as it brakes all the time and more the more distance you need
Do I still need the magnetic brake?
No! The magnetic brake drastically shortens cast distance as it brakes all the time and more the more distance you need
Do I need the spool tension brake?
No! The spool brake is normally not used but adds the ability to adjust the agressivness of the Alphabrake under extreme conditions.
Do I need to use my thumb?
No, not to stop backlash! Under normal circumstances Alphabrake will eliminate backlash. You only need to use yor thumb to stop the lure at a specific spot.
How does Alphabrake work?
The Alphabrake is a fully mechanical deceleration brake system activated and regulated solely by spool speed reduction. Brake force is applied in proportion to the amount of deceleration – more deceleration means more brake force. This is especially useful when using a lighter lure or casting in heavy head-wind. The Alphabrake is deactivated during acceleration and adjusts brake force automatically throughout the cast.
