The new Cressi R50 represent a point of reference in particular for their CNC construction.
Really complete, Cressi R50 reel, with 50 meters 1.5 mm diameter line capacity, put together quality of CNC (computer numerical control) production from full piece, with highest level materials.
Materials and manufacturing
Manufacturing in CNC, in addition to obtaining aesthetically unmatchable components with practically perfect geometrical precision, determines the absence of residual tensions and deformations present with molt production. Looking attently to the two discs of the reel one can in fact notice the micro circular lines made by CNC cuts.
Material used for the main body derives from polypropylene and results to be lighter than water for best balancing of the spear gun. The support structure for the line slide ring and the sledge for the connection to the spear gun is made in AISI 316 stainless steel.
A key aspect in the design of the new R50 is the system to perfectly hold in place the line. First of all, the steel plate has a guide where a plastic disc with central hole is positioned to move up and down. Through this the line passes and is constantly kept in position and well straightened. For additional safety, Cressi has also positioned a turning plastic cylinder that keeps the line in place and is perfectly aligned with the internal profiles of the two discs of the reel, with a precision possible only with CNC production
