Reel Brittania RB1 Fly Reel

The Reel Brittania RB1 fly reel is a top end British designed and manufactured fly reel, incorporating a ground breaking new anti-reverse system.
The initial prototype was designed and tested in collaboration with Lancaster University Engineering Department where dozens of drag materials were tested under extreme conditions in order to select the compound with the highest performance. The chosen compound, coupled with titanium disks not only withstands temperatures in excess of 200°C, but provides a silky smooth drag with virtually no stick-slip.

 



The RB1 reel has been specifically designed for salmon fishing. However, it is also saltwater proof and can handle many of the large saltwater species.
