Ultra Large Arbor – Saltwater
MEGA ARBOR SPOOLS SERIES: SLL6, SLL7, SLL8 – Saltwater
In our extensive dealings and conversations with guides fishing with Shilton Fly Reels around the globe, it became obvious that there was a need for two things namely; a fly reel with a higher line retrieval and a fly reel that addressed the huge backing capacities of fly reels spooled with the new ultra thin superbraid backings (after all, not everybody needs 1200 metres/1300 yards of 50lb braid backing on their Shilton SL8 Large Arbor Fly Reel).
Instead of going out and developing a brand new fly reel, we believe that our Shilton Mega Arbor Spools meet both these requirements. The new spools have also been developed to allow the angler to use the SL Series reels for line weights lighter than originally intended.
Shilton also developed the new CL1 spool which fits onto the CL2 fly reel, effectively turning a 5 weight reel into a highly functional large arbor three weight fly reel.
Besides looking great, we believe these spools add an excellent deal of versatility to the Shilton Fly Range.
