    Small, powerful, elegant and immediately recognizable, this is the synthesis of the new Albacore 12 Gorilla reel. It has been constructed with no arbor for ease of cast. A twin-drag that can be set over 40 lbs still guaranteeing free-spool, and a 4.4:1 ratio that proves to be perfect with this high power yet concise size. It makes it possible to jig and wait for the fish to hit and pull the prey quickly on board that otherwise with conventional reels would be very difficult if not impossible to catch. Expressly studied for extreme deep-jigging, it stands out not only for its powerful and functional performance, but also for its elegant look, silver anodizing, drag release button and red colored handle. Albacore 12 Gorilla reel, once more a "masterpiece for the art of fishing" by Alutecnos.

    Anybody have one or have use it?
    What is your opinion on this reel?I might consider ordering one for my self if it's woth the money
