Favero Fencing Reel, Here NOW! Thanks to an innovative, patented design, the Millennium reel does not use rotating rings with brush rub or mercury contacts. ULTRA FLAT. The reel's thickness is just 4.8cm, slightly more than the piste's height. FEWER WINDING TURNS. Therefore the reel can wind the 20-meter cable in just 20 turns. By contrast, currently available reels require 40 to 50 turns. This also causes the springs to last longer since it has fewer coils to turn. STRONG STAINLESS STEEL CASE. The case is sturdy and easy to clean. In addition, thanks to its flat, square shape, it is easy to carry and store. STEADINESS ON THE FLOOR. Thanks to its solid 4.8kg weight and its four rubber feet, the reel is extremely steady - pulls on the cable during matches can hardly move the reel. INNOVATIVE BRAKING SYSTEM. The reel's design moderates the speed of winding when the cable is released from longer distances. The braking mechanism exploits centrifugal force and activates only when the reel exceeds a certain rotary speed. Strong or bad pulls received by the cable at the end of the run are therefore avoided.
