- adj. Countering or preventing backlash (jarring reflex motion in machinery).
Other features include six ball bearings, a solid anti-reverse, Mag-force antibacklash control, a rigid aluminum frame, a fast 6.3: 1 gear ratio, and an easily controlled perforated spool.
Reel makers have become increasingly clever lately in designing their products with antibacklash controls, but even the best of the new gizmos won't help unless you set your reel up correctly in the first place.
Each rod should have an appropriate reel with drag and antibacklash systems and a configuration of four to six ball bearings for friction-free casting.
