Some time ago, I’ve sold one of my trout reels. I ordered a new one, but I was not really satisfied. It was a good reel, it just doesn’t fit to me…hard to discribe. I’ve sold it and just some days ago, I saw a really good offer on the new Fario reel by Guideline. So, I’ve just ordered it.
The color is bronze. I’m normally more the silver, gray, titianium guy, but I decided to try something different and took the bronze color.
I like the color. Looks even better by daylight and it matches perfectly to the fancy windings on my Sage One 4 weight (I just realized this fact, after the purchase), which will be my main rod for the reel.
The reel is super light. I weighs just under 125 g incl. 100m 0,18mm braided line as backing.
I haven’t fished it yet, because here is closed season for the next months, but I’m sure it will do it’s job. The reel is very well build. Everything fits perfectly, nothing wobbles, it feels lightweight but strong.
I took some pictures of it, because I’m always glad, when I find good pictures of a product I’m interested in to buy, which are not made by the manufacturer.
Never heard of them, where are they located?
I am new to this.
Guideline? It’s a well known company from Sweden with a high reputation. Further informations are here http://www.guideline.no/en/
