The Tibor series of reels were first introduced in 1995 and have established themselves as the benchmark for custom-crafted fly reels. After years of development and input from the likes of Lefty Kreh and Flip Pallot, Ted was finally satisfied with a reel that truly has set a new standard in fly fishing reel technology.
The spool’s large arbor design significantly enhances the rate of line retrieval which is critical when you’re trying to control speedsters like bonefish, bonito, or wahoo.
Tibor Reels are also a mainstay for Spey enthusiasts, delivering the ultimate balance, overall capacity and drag performance for the double-handed rod.
As with all of Ted’s reels, the drag system is absolutely flawless and has withstood the test of the world’s most demanding game fish, including over 350 World Records so far. If you were to own only one fly reel, this is the one to have.
The completely ventilated spool and frame keeps the reel cool during long, smoking runs.
Boasts a robust incoming and outgoing clicker sound.
Unique mechanical clutch system allows easy change from right to left hand retrieve. Features Tibor’s QuickChange™ spool system which involves only a single moving part.
Innovative sealed drag system is waterproof, self-maintaining and still the strongest in the industry.
The drag system constantly applies seal pressure while in free spool so the reel will never overrun while stripping the line.
Comes equipped with our legendary silky smooth micro grain cork that is constantly lubricated.
On the rare occasion that maintenance is necessary, the system can be easily disassembled, yet still remain under warranty – unlike many other sealed-drag reels on the market.
Made from solid bar stock aluminum.
Each reel is serialized for identification and protection. The serial # is located UNDER the nameplate on top of the frame next to the reel stand.
Features a personalized Nameplate engraved free.
Our Delrin Handle offers positive gripping and quick release.
Comes with an extra thick Neoprene Case for convenient storage and transportation.
