There are no other true large arbor, big game fly reels out there that carry this drag system performance at this price. It's unheard of until now. The new Hydros Reel Series features a scaled drag surface that increases total drag surface by model: The larger the reel, the larger the drag surface and the more resistance available to handle larger fish. Using stacked carbon washers in a totally sealed configuration, controlled by a positive click adjustment system, the Hydros can be fine tuned to handle any fish from a trout to a tuna with sustained and infinitely durable drag pressure. The large arbor multiplies retrieval rates, eliminates line coil and significantly reduces fatigue during multiple hook-ups. Now available in three bold colors with a new easy to handle Mirage-style handle, in sizes I through VI. Large arbor fly reals: power, price, and performance equal perfection.
