Piscario Enlightened Angling
Groveley’s partnership with Piscario Enlightened Angling is a perfect example of its extensive variety of skills and capabilities. We were extremely excited to be able to take part in the design and creation of Piscario’s revolutionary product in the fishing industry – a centre pin reel in the strongest and most durable modern material, titanium.
We started off developing the design using 3D modelling software on the computer and then 3D printing the best ideas in plastic in various versions until we produced the perfect design. After that, we designed a quick-release mechanism for the spools after testing and loosening several nuts while fishing! Moving and modifying the line guard was the final change.
Titanium is used in advanced engineering applications so why not a centre pin reel? It is a tricky material to machine, but the conclusion was made to shape the spool and back plate from solid blocks of 99% pure titanium, for its high strength (six times stronger than aluminium), low weight ratio and outstanding corrosion resistance. The latest machining tools and techniques were utilised by our experienced, highly-skilled craftsmen who take great pride in the manufacture of these magnificent engineering marvels.
