In it's price range HALO has class leading qualities in all aspects of material and manufacturing. These large arbor fly reels are cnc-machined of high quality aluminium to ensure a top experience on the water and flawless functionality. All models come with a full frame design/rim cage to stabilize the frame and prevent thin shooting lines from getting caught between frame and spool. A construction that meets the multitude of fly lines in modern fly fishing. The large arbor design of these light weight fly reels gives a quick retrieve and less coiling of the fly line. The smooth, precise and sealed drag system on the Halo is well proven over years of fishing in all elements. Six reel models sets the range from the most delicate Euro Nymphing via trout- and salmon fishing to the craziest tropical battles.
Halo Fly Reel is built on a modern disc drag concept with carbon and stainless discs stacked against each other. To optimize performance and design, Guideline has chosen to work with two different sizes and drag strengths for smaller and larger reel sizes. 1,5 kg at bottom of spool on the 3 smallest sizes and 4,0 kg drag on the largest three sizes. This will ensure best possible use of the drag when fighting fish. The retrieve direction on the reels is easy to change and only takes a couple of minutes to perform. The rims on both the spool & the back side has engraved circles to give the reel the Halo effect. All sizes has the same design, except the brake knob. The three larger sizes has a bigger, fully chromed knob, while the three smaller reels have a smaller knob with a centre plate in the same color as the reel.
