The massive innovation is constituted by the new AB1 rollers covered by International Patent. These are line roller guides with the connecting feet of which are both rocking with a double movement created on the roller structure. These movements respect the action of the blank on which they are mounted, following the arc under stress and leaving its reactivity and action unchanged. 
Not a small difference, if we consider that all rollers, which are currently on the market, stiffen the blank from 20% to 40% depending on the size of the feet. This is a proven results of a partial block of the original action of the rod, greatly reducing the reactivity of the blank used.
During the fight phase, the curve of the blank is partially interrupted by the rigid support feet of the rollers, thus dissipating part of its reactivity (and therefore the force). By using the AB1 rollers equal to the blank and number of rollers mounted, the fighting time and the physical stress of the angler is greatly reduce, furthermore the blank will retain its original strength for much longer as the impact of the AB1 rollers is non-existent on the blank.

By causing the bending of the rod with a weight of 2kg at a closed angle, the relative bending curve shows that the entire axis is affected.

The top of the rod is set at an angle of 45°, the base is positioned at 5°, the grip remains at zero and the angles between the competing forces acting on the AB1 rollers increase in width; the weight on the rod already tensiones the fishing line with constant force, without any uncertaincies, and the components of the reaction forces, distributed on the AB1 roller guides, have parameters that do not exceed the force of the applied action.
The action of the blank, so distributed, in 98cm in length and with an un comparable phenomenon, is amazing and thanks to the merits of the AB1 roller technology.  Using traditional roller guides, to obtain the same results, it would have been necessary to work on an increased length of at least another 40cm which, however, would distort the technical characteristics of a stand-up Rod because it would considerably lengthen the resistance arm, thus recovering much slower.  If instead on the same length blank there were traditional roller guides, there would be a un functionable phenomenon whose negative effect is the need to oversize the fishing line with the respect to the technical data of the Rod, then larger reels to contain it.
 In the ranges from 3.5kg to 12kg the curves describe a perfect distribution of forces, with the top that cancels its function after 7kg (best drag) and the fisher that pushes the Rod up to 12kg (max drag) maintaining constant and unchanged the physical and mechanical principles already highlighted at the beginning of the test.
We can thus declare with knowledge of the technical cause:

Fighting drag 3.5-8.5 kg
Best drag 7 kg
Max drag 12 kg
