Let’s face it, die cast reels are intended to be low cost alternatives to a machined reel, right? Heavier, easier to damage, plain Jane, etc. Well...not necessarily. When we started creating Liquid we focused purely on the virtues and advantages a pressure-cast process can offer. Structurally you can do things with casting that you can’t machine, such as full radiused compound curves, near zero-radius inside corners, and for precise fit and finish you can go back and machine the cast part in critical areas amplifying the best aspects of the process. Nudging out a worthy old war horse like Konic wasn’t easy. It took a blank sheet of paper and sharp electrons.
