Building on the success of the Hydros Series reels, the Orvis Company has created a beefed-up line for saltwater anglers targeting trophies. The Orvis Hydros SL Fly Reels feature a "super-large" arbor that consistently yields much quicker retrieve rates, resulting in up to 12% increase in line recovery per cast. That makes a significant difference when casting large baits and battling big, powerful fish! To complement that, Orvis has installed a drag system that's nearly 3 times stronger, with zero start-up inertia. Completely sealed, the drag incorporates its own clutch bearing inside to ensure immediate engagement on the hookset. With a narrow spool for less line stacking, increased backing capacity, and extra-close tolerances for total-system smoothness, the Hydros SL reels are truly built for bear.
