Snowbee GEO-S Salmon & Saltwater Fly Reels.
2019 saw the return of our amazing Geo-S fly reels – a range of reels, with which the world’s fly fishers could take on the best that the largest rivers and widest oceans could throw at them… and win!
These classy reels feature a precision milled CNC body and spool to reduce weight to the minimum, whilst retaining massive strength. The powerful, multi-disc, stacked drag system uses a mix of stainless steel, carbon fiber and cork to deliver a silky-smooth drag performance with near zero start-up inertia. A fine-pitch drag adjustment allows minute increases in drag pressure from zero, to a class leading 6.5 kg (14 lb) at maximum drag and the whole drag assembly is completely sealed for saltwater use. This 'stacked drag disc' system is similar to that used in our original XS reels made by British Fly Reels all those years ago, in that some discs are 'locked' and some are free to rotate at their own speed. This not only allows for an ultra-smooth start up when a fish takes, with the drag discs all starting at their own speed, but the multi-surface drag provides a class-leading 46.5 cm2 of drag surface area! Hard anodized in 'satin silver' for total chip and corrosion resistance.
