Guideline’s Head of Product Development and Design, Leif Stävmo, says the new Vosso is the Norwegian company’s strongest and most advanced reel ever.

Guideline’s Head of Product Development and Design, Leif Stävmo, concedes it may have been too long since the Norwegian fishing tackle manufacturer introduced a new reel.

He admits: “It may have been quite a few years. But I suppose it reflects something from inside of me. I don’t speak if I have nothing to say. The Vosso fly reel has been on the drawing board and in the development process for the best part of three years.

“I am sure that the finished product will be the cornerstone in Guideline reels for years to come. They are the strongest and most advanced reels in the family – ever.”

A hard, black nickel ‘bead blasted’ stealth finish with a contrasting GL red drag cylinder delivers the looks. The waterproof and strong drag system is made around a stack of carbon and stainless discs. The system is controlled by a comfortable and slightly recessed, large drag knob with a large field of adjustment for fine-tuning.

A recessed reel foot mounted on a strong truss-bar construction brings the reel close to the rod for reduced torque and better balance. It is also used in all support bars on the reel.

The bottom features a tippet holder that keeps loose ends from tangling. The reels are lightweight, yet extremely rigid and strong. With a slightly oversized diameter, they also offer fast retrieve and generous backing capacity.

The Vosso is available in 79, 911 and 1113 versions for heavy single, double-handed and switch fishing.

Guideline says that the reels have been designed entirely for their field of use – fishing for salmon, sea trout, steelhead and tropical species.
