Fly Reel Review

For those of you wanting to get started flyfishing on a bit of a budget I am going to review some reasonable priced reels. They also have rods to match some of the reels so you can get a match set. With reel prices starting under $50.00 you can’t go wrong. All the reels I have reviewed are made of quality materials with all the features you will ever need.

Piscifun® Sword Fly Fishing Reel

You will be amazed at the performance, price and value of the Sword series. It features CNC-machined 6061-T6 aluminum alloy construction, hard anodized finish, easy-to-adjust drag system and lightweight design, which makes them winner reels in the similar price range.


Product highlight

  • SOLID and LIGHTER WEIGHT – Precision CNC-machined 6061-T6 aluminum alloy for high-impact durability; Larger CNC hollow design makes the reel lighter than ordinary ones.
  • SILKY SMOOTH DRAG – Multi-disc cork and stainless steel drag system with a one-way clutch bearing for smooth immediate drag engagement. Accurate click drag and silent retrieve.
  • CORROSION RESISTANCE – Hard anodized for surface protection increases abrasion resistance and weather fastness; Cold forged and tempered for superior strength and rigidity.
