The SL8 reigns as the preferred reel for numerous prominent guide services, selected for its indestructible build. With a venerable 20-year history, it has proven itself in the most demanding locales, battling formidable foes like salmon, steelhead, tigerfish, golden dorado, bonefish, and permit. Constructed from premium 6082 T6 high-grade bar stock aluminum, the reel boasts a custom-treated cork drag system, complete with protected one-way plungers. Compatible with 7 to 8 weight lines, it offers customization in its click mechanism—choose from audible signals on both incoming and outgoing or opt for silent on the pull with a click on the retrieve. Aesthetic choices span titanium, black, blue, turquoise, purple, red, gold, or a bespoke hue to match any angler’s style.
