A premium reel requires a world-class brake, plenty of line capacity, a light but solid construction and last but definitely not least a unique design to separate it clearly from all the other reels on the market. Those were our main targets with XO fly reels. Light, large-arbour reels with a well tested brake design to complement our premium XO trout fly rods.
#3/4 class reel has an adjustable click brake for increased lightness, whereas #5/6 and #7/8 class reels have a powerful and smooth disc brake. All moving parts are greased with SKF's water resistant bearing grease.
#5/6 Silver model reel available.

The XO reel’s stunning look fused with our XLB reel’s bomb proof & powerful brake. This brake mechanism has been used for over 20 years and proven to be better sealed than its predecessors. These bigger reels are aimed at heavy salmon and saltwater use. The brake power increases within 2,5 rotations, giving you an impressive 8kg maximum force. The waterproofing utilises axle seals from German Ina with premium bearings from Japan.
