The Torque reel represents the very best of modern fly reel architecture. It was the first Galvan reel released with the Torque drag system, which is now employed in all of Galvan's reels. The visually striking appearance of the Torque reel is a result of the unique cut-outs on the frame, spool, drag knob and reel foot. This design is not only aesthetic but also structural as it significantly reduces the weight of the reel while maintaining strength and increasing rigidity .The rounded rims on both spool and frame enhance durability to better withstand impact during extreme angling conditions. At first glance, the hand is drawn to the reel and from the first crank of the contoured counter balanced spool, the reel’s quality is apparent. It is a combination of efficiency and simplicity driven by function. In this case, less is more and cost is no exception as Torque reels retail at half the price of reels in its class. Torque Series reels are saltwater safe and will perform flawlessly under the harshest conditions. From remote alpine lakes to the saltwater flats, the highly ventilated spool and frame balance nicely with the lightest of today’s fly rods yet still compliment a modern big-game saltwater fly rod. The Torque is tough as nails and skillfully marries the technology of the future with the tradition of the past. Stocked in five sizes to cover small Brookies to Salmon and Bonefish.
