Wychwood Truefly Cassette Reel
- Dark Silver
The new Mark II Reel is now available in size 5/6 weight
Extra spools for the new model are clear.
Not only is the SLA MKII a more aesthetically pleasing fly reel, having been slimmed down and refined so that each curve and nuance serves a purpose, either to highlight it is contoured lines or its feel and fit when its in use. It is also - and heres the key - very, very light.
This reel is over half an ounce lighter than the old SLA weighing in at an anorexic 183gramms! This remarkable achievement was possible thanks to some judicious design and production processes.By carefully removing as much material as possible from the die cast aluminium frame and cage, without compromising on the reels integrity or functionality, we were able achieve our target goal of making the SLA MKII the lightest fly reel in its class.*
The reels functionality is superb, incorporating a semi-sealed Rulon drag system, a snug, compression fit spool and now featuring sculpted spool release and drag knobs, for a comfortable feel when in use.The MKII combines good looks with serious performance values.
The following info relates to the older model
The Award Winning Wychwood Truefly Reel won the "Best new fly reel" at the 2009 EFFTEX show, and remains a classic.
Created using the highest design specifications, and challenging the boundaries of production, the result has been the largest arbor and the lightest reel in its class. The lightweight design was attained by using a die-cast aluminium frame and cage, with as much material removed as possible without compromising on the engineered functionality. The reel features a concealed Rulon drag system, a hidden counter balance system, and is packaged in a custom built EVA protective case, complete with two spare polycarbonate spools.
