Einarsson Fly Fishing is proud to present to the fly fishing world a new and unique technical revelation which has the ability to store the fish-generated energy experienced whilst fighting the fish within the reel system. For the first time ever, brake start-up friction is zero. The Einarsson drag system smoothly levels out shockwaves experienced by the brake during both the take, and during the fight such the long screaming runs and jumping and head shaking of the fish.

Simply put, Einarsson's new patented SAB (Shock Absorbing Brake) drag system offers you the smoothest brake system you have ever experienced.
