  1. Q50-2 Review

    If you’ve been following angler management in the development of some of the new reels that we have been working with Qualia on, then this review will seem very similar to our selfish series real, the 14WAM.

    With the abundance of big sharks, and wahoo that we have here on the south east coast of Florida, we needed to build something that can stand up to heavy trolling at high-speed’s, as well as something extremely powerful for our customers to fight large sharks with and not tire out. Day in and day out abuse means we need a reel that can perform day in and day out without break down that’s where you’ll see the 50 wide that we have built is simply overbuilt.

    You’ll notice a simple high-quality 3 piece corrosion resistant aluminum frame. We also added the notched drag feature as well as a notched preset so that unknowing customers or folks fighting fish cannot slip either of these at any time or while trolling/underway.

    When you remove the left side plate via 4 Phillips head screws it will reveal a large 3/8″ spindle which the spool sets on, this needed to be overbuilt for durability so that there would be absolutely no flex when under heavy load. You’ll also note Taiwanese bearings which are extremely high-quality and many consider to be the best on the market.

    Next, by removing 7 of the flat head screws, stainless steel by the way, you’ll have access to the right side and when you pull it off the first thing that you’re going to notice is yet again, an incredibly simple yet beefy design. There is a large stainless steel (2-speed) gear that turns a large stainless main/pinion gear which operates the spool. This is notched using a large 3/4″ square fitting which will never wear away or fail. This is a very beefy and oversized gear that we could put into this reel giving it powerful speed when trying to retrieve line. As your examine the ball bearings you will see that the spool sets on three high-quality well oversized Taiwanese bearings, including a large 1″ anti reverse bearing. You’ll notice like the 14WAM reel, a larger right side bearing to handle the thrust load of the drag so that we can fish both low and high drag settings without having any additional pressure on the right side of the school, or “binding” which is very common in some lever drag reels on the market nowadays. We also went with the International style clicker for indestructibility. Also note the use of two anti-reverse dogs for ultimate strength. The final thing you’ll notice that there’s absolutely no plastic parts whatsoever you’ll see that everything is high quality stainless steel or brass.

    When you remove the drag pressure plate, via 4 stainless Phillips head screws you’ll see a large Teflon drag washer that is heavily notched in 6 Places into the reel as well as greased with a very special teflon grease that is capable of high heat and 30-50 pounds of easy drag.

    Finally, as you remove the one piece solid aluminum spool you’ll also notice that it does not sit on a spacer like our other new models. This eliminates an area where any debris or build that can occur maintaining beautiful free spool in the reel not only the day you take it out of the box but even after a year with heavy salt water use. You want dependable power, here you go!
