Sigalsub, the Italian company specialized in spearfishing equipment, and producing inhouse a great number of machined components for many spearfishing products, perfect for personalizing equipment, has a complete number of spearguns reels. 9 solutions, with 3 dimensions, 60, 80 and 100 mm diameter, and 3 materials, glass loaded Nylon (MUL60-80 and 100), aluminium (Edy Aluminium) and carbon fiber (Edy Carbon).
Slight difference between the glass loaded Nylon versions, equipped with a steel line cover, and the Edy solutions, with a spinning cylinder with the same function of keeping the line well positioned inside the reel track.
All Sigalsub reels have a clutch that can be easily regulated with a well designed knob, and also a useful elongation system for the winch, that can be kept short in ormal condtions and elongated for faster and more comfortable winding of the line.
As always a deeper check by AP for some additional details, in this case regarding weight, as the different materials also lead to different values. Here the table of contents:
|Reels Weights in grams||Nylon||Aluminium||Carbon fiber|
|60 mm||115 gr||135 gr||140 gr|
|80 mm||135 gr||160 gr||180 gr|
|100 mm||165 gr||210 gr||230 gr|
Connections to speargun
Connections to the speargun is obtained with two screws. Holes for the screws on the steel base of the reels are actually with a long shape to permit different positions and adaptations. Below the table of distances.
|Distances from central axle in mm (distance from axle + length of the hole)|
|60 mm||18 + 10 + (8 + 7)* *has double hole|
|80 mm||23 + 15|
|100 mm||23 + 15|
Free space for the line
Another parameter which slightly differs between the 3 materials is the thickness of the upper and lower circular elements. Such variable value actually determines a different height available inside reels of the 3 different materials to position the line.
|Free hieght inside the reel|
|Glass loaded Nylon||31 mm|
|Carbon fiber||33.7 mm|
Meaning that an Aluminium and carbon fiber reels can host 9% more line than the glass loaded nylon solution, still maintaining the same diameter.
