ONYX 7/9 43106 WF7F + 100yd 22lb PE 95mm 173g
The new Onyx range of fly reels from Snowbee offers a new dimension in fly reel design and technology. The main reel frame and spool are made from lightweight, durable die-cast aluminium. However, they are then finished on a precision CNC machine, so you get the best of both worlds – the finish, feel and precision of a CNC machined reel, but at a ‘die-cast’ price! The large arbor design gives faster line retrieve, more consistent drag performance and minimal line memory. Add to this a multi-disc, centre drag system and you have a fly reel which performs way above its expectations at this price level. The cork and stainless steel drag discs provide a smooth, powerful drag performance, with minimal start-up inertia, to avoid those ‘smash-takes’. The new ONYX fly reels come in a full range of sizes from a tiny #1/2 model for the smallest brook rod, right up to a powerful #9/11 salt water model. Both the #5/7 and #7/9 models come with an easy-change cassette spool system.
