Waterworks ULA Force SL Reels

Force SL represents the world’s lightest full-drag true large arbor reel. The conical drag, first developed for this reel in 1996, allows the structure of the reel to maximize the large, wide line storage format pioneered by the Waterworks, without the mass of a disc-dedicated structure. The F2 SL can pick up line quickly, store it without coiling, provide a consistant drag torque and still weigh in at an incredible 3.25 oz.

Format: Ultra Large Arbor
Materials: Machined Aluminum and Stainless Steel
Finish: Hard Alox

LINE STORAGE FORMAT Our large arbor reels maximize the benefits of large arbor design by maximizing the arbor diameter-to-width ratio. The spool is large in circumference and wide, so that line is stored in a shallow layer. The increased circumference provides high retrieve rate and eliminates line coil memory. The wide, shallow line layer means there is little radius change as line is pulled form the reel. This results in constant drag torque during long runs and eliminates the risk of tippets breaking due to drag force gain.

DRAG SYSTEM The ULA, Litespeed and Velocity drag consists of a pair of precisely matched conical elements which are drawn together with spring tension to produce variable rates of smooth rotational braking. By re-configuring the surface area of traditional disks into a pair of matching conical elements we were able to seal the drag completely from moisture, salt and grit. And since the mass of the drag elements is centralized, the spool's rotating mass is much lower which makes the reel more responsive to light drag settings. Because the average radius of the contact surface is much smaller (being conical rather than disk-shaped), start-up torque is too low to measure. US Patent #5,915,639; other patents pending.

CLUTCH Most premium reels rely on a pawl type clutch mechanism. These are often vulnerable to stress related failure, contamination and wear. The ULA, Litespeed and Velocity employ a Torrington zero-lash roller clutch. This mechanism relies on the locking effect of a number of ramps and rollers to achieve torque transmission. There are no "teeth" or "steps" to break off or wear out. And the zero-lash feature means instant engagement. This improves feel and eliminates "spike" that the reel, line and leader experience when a typical pawl clutch hooks up.
