Graphite Large Arbor (GLA) Fly Reel features disk drag and a light weight design for an affordable price. The drag engages when line is taken out from the reel, yet free wheels for easy line retrieval. The one way roller bearing engages the drag with zero backlash. Easily switch from left to right hand retrieve simply by flipping the roller bearing (see instructions below).
