Built proud in Philadelphia, the International VS are precision machined from high-strength, lightweight, aircraft grade aluminum, not weak plastic parts that may flex under heavy drags or intense heat. The two speed design allows for quick adjustment into high or low gear. The Dura-Drag system results in a smoother start up and virtually eliminates hesitation, even under extreme drag settings. Consistent drag performance is arguably the most important feature required during long battles. In the lab, the competitions drag force varied by almost 30% where the Dura-Drag system maintained the same level of drag pressure throughout without fluctuation.
