The powerhouse of big game fishing, Fin-Nor's Santiago Conventional Saltwater Trolling Reel is perfectly designed to satisfy the needs of today's big game anglers. The high-performing Fin-Nor Santiago Trolling Reel features a solid one-piece, fully-machined aluminum frame and one-piece aluminum spool supported by a machined, stainless steel center shaft that turns on four ultra-smooth and super-strong ceramic/stainless hybrid ball bearings.
The Santiago's revolutionary drag system was specifically designed to handle strong, long fighting fish and is big enough, strong enough and smooth enough to fish IGFA-rated mono lines or heavy braided lines. The Santiago's water-tight, auto-aligning multi-layer drag system combines the strength of stainless steel with twin carbon-fiber discs for the ultimate in smoothness and heat dissipation. A ''free'' drag setting provides complete fiction-free spooling with a powerful drag at strike, and extra power at full.
Every Santiago Trolling Reel offers two speeds for quick line pick-up and power on demand. An easy-to-use button pushes in for a powerful low-gear and easily releases for high-speed retrieves. The Santiago’s ergonomic handle knob adds comfort, and allows anglers to stay on a fish with greater control. Fin-Nor’s classic gold anodized finish looks great and protects the Santiago from the element.
