MOMENTUM Carbon Fiber Drag Technology Co-Engineered with Kestrel USA The Finest Name in Carbon Fiber Mo men tum: (mO-'men-tm) (n. pl.) A measure of the motion of a body equal to the product of its mass and velocity. Synonyms: drive, energy, power, strength The Momentum series has been in development for more than two years. Our primary focus has been the incorporation of carbon fiber into the drag system so the entire reel could benefit from the desirable properties of this incredible material. Stiffness, strength, heat resistance, shock-damping capabilities and infinite fatigue resistance are all properties of carbon fiber that will help make the Momentum drag system the strongest and most dependable big game reel on the market today. The question remained where do we begin? The answer was obvious Kestrel USA The First Name in Carbon Fiber! Welcome to the next generation of Ross products! The Momentum series represents a cosmic departure from current Ross designs in both function and style. The carbon fiber we have employed for the Momentum drag system is incredibly strong! The measurement of the strength for this material is ksi, which denotes tensile strength in thousands of pounds per square inch. So just how strong is our carbon fiber drag system? To get a good perspective on this, the aluminum used to produce Ross products is 45ksi; meaning it can resist a tension load of 45,000 pounds per square inch of material. This is pretty impressive until you realize that the carbon fiber used in the Momentum drag system is 700ksi vastly stronger than aluminum, steel and even titanium! The first time you handle a Momentum reel, you will be amazed with its meticulous machining and ergonomic design. We have custom fit this series with a large but unobtrusive drag knob easily found for adjustment during the heat of battle, but never in the way. Additionally, the Momentum handle has been designed to fit comfortably between your fingers, but will never slip free when taking on a monster fish. Each reel in this series is designed with a specific diameter and width to maximize the properties of drag consistency and line retrieval. With 6.3 square inches of effective drag surface, and 12 pounds of dead lift weight, the Momentum series has three times the effective stopping power of every drag tested. Put simply, the Momentum is the strongest fly fishing reel on the market today; and it costs considerably less than many competitive brands. A triple-redundancy drag system ensures dependability under the most demanding fishing conditions, and by adding in features like a titanium drag components, a quick-release locking spool and water shedding grooves on the palming rim, you have the ultimate big game fly fishing reel. With a wide range of sizes available, the Momentum series is appropriate for any fishing application, including Spey.
