The R2 follows on from our traditional design whilst benefiting from state of the art technology that's used in its manufacturing process.

A proven design which has stood the test of time and will continue to be a true work horse


No clumsy tools or awkward coins to get your kingpin spool off. This ergonomic finger release screw works and looks just the job

This cap is a prime example of how we like to make something better as opposed to less expensive, a coin release screw is half the cost!



Easy to operate and with out doubt the strongest check system on any reel for peace of mind when rigging or walking the river. We say 'no' to *weak clickers

*If you are using your clicker to fight fish, don't. Use your hands! 



Note how every hole has a radii machined around the edge. The radii are scaled to each hole meaning the bigger the hole the bigger the radii. No sharp edges or dodgy burrs on a kingpin.



Take a closer look at the rim on the spool, perfect for those feisty fish - no hot spots. This is a combination of clever machining and hand polishing to get it perfect. There is an awful lot of work that goes into these reels both by man and machine



All backplates are Defence Standard hard anodized! Reels are always laid on their back so it makes sense to make them scratch resistant, tougher than steel. Its twice the cost but five times the better and we are the only manufacturer of centrepins that applies this process as standard.
