Product Description

The Rovex Radion Fly Reel is an attractive, die cast Aluminium Reel with a smooth action and powerful centre disc drag. The reel is finished with a tough, low glare, blue-black enamel.

This is a good die-cast aluminium fly reel with some nice touches.

DETAILS

The Rovex Radion Wide Arbor Fly Reel comes in two sizes:

- a 3.50" reel for AFTM 5-6 fly lines (plus backing line)
- a 3.75" reel for AFTM 7-8 fly lines (plus backing line)

#5-6 Weight: 166g
#7-8 Weight: 190g

The Radion Fly Reels look good with some nice design touches and have a powerful centre disc drag system with a softgrip adjustment. They feel good in the hand and the drag adjustment is large and easy to set which is just what you need to give you confidence when playing a large fish.

CONSTRUCTION

The Rovex Radion reel and spool are made from die cast aluminium.

The centre disc drag and one way release are stacked on top of each other on the spindle. Reversing the drag system is just a case of turning over the hexagonal hub at the base of the spindle. This is held in place by a rubber O ring that must be removed first.

The disc drag is adjusted by a large, softgrip knob on the back of the reel which is nice and easy to adjust. No fiddling about here when you're playing a nice large fish.

The spool is cast in a single piece and has a counterbalanced handle. Removing the spool is a simple matter of sliding a small release lever which can be done with one hand.

OUR OPINION

The Rovex Radion Fly Reels look good with some nice design touches and have a powerful centre disc drag system with a softgrip adjustment. The all metal construction looks good, feels good and sounds good when compared with the composite reels.

The Rovex Radion reel has a good strong drag systems that's more convenient to set and more powerful than the offset systems found on cheaper reels. That alone is probably worth the extra money.

All metal reels do tend to weigh more than their composite counterparts and this reel is no exception. Metal is denser and will generally weigh more when compared strength for strength. Unless you're setting out with a short, light rod this will often work to your advantage as it will better balance the rod.

Being a die cast reel it won't be as strong as one machined from aluminium bar stock. But those are 2-3x more expensive and as long as you don't tend to drop your reel on concrete reservoirs you're unlikely to have any problems.

In conclusion. A nice metal fly reel that looks good, feels good and will perform well. Has an excellent disc drag system and is really a pretty good reel all round for the money.
