The latest new product to come from Cheeky Fly Fishing is the Boost Reel Series, a collection of three new freshwater fly reels that the US company promises ‘won’t break the bank’.
The Boost 325, 350 and 400 models are designed and built for two-weight to eight-weight applications. Each features the Rev carbon fibre drag system, an alternating stacked disc drag developed specifically for the Boost series.
Made from anodised aluminium, all three reels also incorporate the Massachusetts company’s MAX Arbor for high retrieval rates (the 400 retrieves 12.5 inches of line per revolution) and are modeled on the signature Cheeky look. But according to Cheeky Fly Fishing owner, Ted Upton, perhaps the most impressive feature of the new reels is their strength-to-weight ratio.
“At 4.3oz the Boost 325 weighs less than your cell phone,” says Upton. “But it has the stopping power to halt a runaway beast. Whether you’re making 1,000 casts a day or just getting into the sport, the lightweight and indestructible design of these reels will keep you on the water longer.”
Upton explained that the Boost series is the culmination of a lot of hard work to develop a reel with a distinct style and performance. “We wanted to achieve that, yet at a more approachable price point for our customers,” he continued.
“The result is a series that mixes incredible performance with good looks and great value.”
Cheeky Boost reels are available from $209 and carry a lifetime warranty.
