EFTTEX Awards 2012 - Best New Fly Reel

A Jensen da Vinci Fly Reel

The best part of a year has gone into the building of this A Jensen reel.

The brake is fully sealed, air and watertight and consists of multi-carbon discs so that it can withstand the toughest day’s fishing.

A Jensen says: “It has been tested on several monsters of the sea, Danish sea trout and stripers in the US – and some ‘steroid’ tuna! The reel came out on top!

“The reel is different in design to others and that is why it felt natural to pay tribute to an unusual man – Leonardo da Vinci – a man with thoughts many decades before his time.”

The Danish company adds that the brake is core to the reel design and the brake knob is easily adjustable, covering the full side of the reel housing. The design also eliminates problems of the line getting caught.

CNC cut from aircraft-grade aluminium, it is also saltwater resistant.
