I was interested in the reels of the icelandic company Einarsson for quite a long time. I often grab them at my dealer and „play“ with them. Not the cheapest reels on the market, but definitely one of the best. I really like the closed frame. You don’t often find closed frames.
With other reels it often happens, that when you use mono shooting line, it slips between the spool and the frame and that really sucks! A closed frame makes the reel also very strong by lightweight construction.
Well, here it is, my new Einarsson 5Plus. Perfectly machined reel with a super smooth sealed break. The colors name is „champagne“ and it fits perfect to my Sage One rods. For a stylish guy like me, matching colors of the tackle is very important! ;-)
I bought it for my 6 and 7 weights, but you can fish it on a 5 weight with no problems. I guess it could also work on a 8 weight, when using very thin backing.
Can’t wait for the new season to start! :-)
