Scierra Traxion 1 LW Fly Reel

TFF reviews the Scierra Traxion 1 LW Fly Reel

This lightweight reel from Scierra is built from one block of 6061 grade aluminium. The 5/6 model seen here weighs 178g. The reel has a water tight smooth micro adjustable drag system, which is ideal for those anglers who like to play the fish off the reel. The reel comes in four sizes covering a range of line ratings- 2/4, 5/6, 7/9 and 9/11. The U shaped large arbour spool ensures a nice layering of the flyline when winding the line back onto the reel and a smooth release when removing line. There is an easy change system for swapping spools. Spare spools can be bought separately. The reel comes with a neoprene pouch with a Phillips screw driver and spare O ring if you need to change from left hand to right hand wind. The gun smoke metal finish gives this reel a smart look, which will look the part on any rod. This is a tidy reel with models available for both the river and reservoir angler and those who venture out on the small waters. Available from Scierra stockists.


RRP: £99.99 FOR 7/9-wt prices varies depending on size of reel
