The new Sustain is a all-round front drag spinning reel with some exiting new features.
The most important new feature is the X-Protect technology which is used to protect the important inner reel parts. X- Protect features water repellent+, a special labyrinth structure in order to keep water out of the reel body. This is 7 times more water resistant than the CoreProtect technology. This makes the reel very suitable for 'rough' conditions like high waves (SW), rain, wading fishing, ie fishing styles where the reel takes a lot of abuse from water and driving rain. The gearing of the reel is stronger than before, the drag features cross carbon drag washers; all of this makes the reel suitable for heavy conditions.
