Classic reels have been made by many manufacturers worldwide before. We know this, and we are completely against “copying other ideas”. We like to be original in all aspects. However, we felt that we could add something to the beautiful classic design, at least make it functional, with a larger arbor among other up-to-date features.
Our Classico reels are the world’s first version of a classic reel with a narrow and large arbor, which also makes this beautiful design a functional one. Since we decided to make this reel perfect, we removed the awful “clinking teaspoon sound” as well – there is really no need to disturb nature’s natural sounds and songs.
The material we use for our brake system is solid stainless vanadium steel alloy, and the brake disc and pads are made of fiber armed PTFE. The running axes are hard coated in a special treatment where PTFE particles are embedded into the pores of the aluminium surface – completely sealed and waterproof. Salmologic’s reels are made according to the absolute highest standards possible and manufacture in Germany. All reels are serial numbered from 101 and up.
Salmologic Classico is available in two different sizes for salmon and sea trout. The reels are recommended with our G&G system – if you know your casting weight, you also know which reel to pick.
