The NuCast Synergy Fly Reel has been an eye-catcher for everyone from age 2 to 92. The reel is forged of Aircraft Aluminum. The frame and spool are strong, light weight, and non-corrosive. The stainless steel components are equally strong with an ultra smooth disk drag which, along with the mid sized arbor, helps retrieve line quickly. The reel has an interchangeable right to left hand retrieve. Balances beautifully on an appropriate weight rod. The medium size will carry 5 or 6 weight line.The small size will match a 2, 3, or 4 weight rod with a 2, 3, or 4 weight line. The small reel is also listed on this site.
