Accurate showed off their first Star Drag reel at ICAST in July 2018, a true twin drag star design reel, but accomplished differently than Accurate’s twin drag leverdrag reels.

There are a couple things distinguishing Accurate’s design.  First off, twin drag application to a star drag reel. Rather than a drag stack, metal and carbon fiber washers on one side of the reel, with Accurate’s design there’s a pressure plate and friction washer on both sides of the main gear. It’s not applying pressure on both sides of the spool like their leverdrags, but instead are incorporating pressure on both sides of the gear itself – that’s why the gear case is a bit chunkier than other reels designs. The result is, like other Twin-Drag reels, smoothness that comes from only having to apply half the pressure of a traditional design since that pressure is applied to both sides of the spool rather than only one.  The spool is also sleeved, excellent freespool the result.  The other thing Accurate mentions with their new designs is CVX technology.  That’s an interesting buzzword. Don’t quite know what that means in machining or fishing. It has a distinct meaning in government (an app for engagement…bs). In Accurate’s terminology glossary, CVX refers to the way the frames were cut out verses BX or other series reels, more weight trimmed from the frames while retaining similar strength.  Bottom line, they are light like the Valiants, similar weight savings from more traditional designs.
