We've refined our best-selling Orvis Hydros Reels for even better performance.
The Hydros SL delivers a 12% increase in line-retrieval rate, has a narrow spool to eliminate line stacking, and offers increased backing capacity. To top it off, it has a fully sealed drag mechanism, which means it's good to go for fishing the salt.
