Torque Fly Reel
It is seriously tough to beat the Galvan Torque Reel. As Galvan’s top of the line reel, it represents a lifetime of fly reel design.Representing the best of modern fly reel architecture and an incredibly powerful drag system, the Torque is a beautiful and functional piece of fly fishing equipment that we have loved at the Caddis Fly Shop for over a decade.
From an appearance standpoint, the Torque has always been striking. It is fully machined out which greatly reduces the overall weight of the reel, but Galvan has done it in a way to maintain its incredible strength and rigidity. The rounded rims on the spool and frame enhance overall durability and make it so the Torque can withstand the nastiest of angling conditions. Take my word for it: I have had the same Galvan Torque Reel since 2006 and it is still to this day one of my go-to reels.
The Torque is made with T6 solid bar stock aircraft grade aluminum. This aluminum is tempered to greatly increase its strength.
The Torque Drag System is smooth and reliable with an unobtrusive single pawl click. The new and improved thermoplastic and carbon fiber discs require minimal lubrication and virtually no maintenance. The Torque Drag is simple and one of the best in the world for fish big and small.
From the first crank with this reel you will know that you have something special in your hands. Take it to the salt or your favorite high altitude trout stream and it will perform with certain elegance and dependability that can only come from a lifetime of construction and over a decade worth of supremacy. It is light enough to accommodate the modern light tackle of our day and age but it can still function beautifully on a big-game salt rod.
