Wright & McGill – part of the Eagle Claw Fishing Tackle stable – returned from ICAST 2012 with a New Product Showcase award following the success of its Sabalos Fly Reel.

The company says that its new series of reels set ‘new’ standards for quality and performance, but delivers these ‘exceptional’ features at prices no-one ever thought possible.

Starting at $199.99 for the 7/8 weight reel the range goes up to the 11/12 model which retails at $219.99.

“Beautiful and durable two-tone anodising and detailed machining makes this reel look as good as it performs,” says Wright & McGill. “These new reels were designed and tested to be the perfect complement to our Flats Blue saltwater fly rods, but they will be just as happy sitting alongside any rod that you currently own.”

Key features of the reels include:

  • Ultra lightweight and strong/6061 bar stock aluminium frame;
  • 6061 bar stock aluminium spool;
  • Highly machined custom cutting for weight reduction/balance;
  • Comfortable and durable aluminium handle;
  • Hard anodized two-tone finish;
  • Powerful dual core disc draft system/ Cork and improved Teflon®;
  • Sealed ball bearings;
  • Large/wide arbor drags.
