The new Snowbee Geo-S range moves Snowbee into a different league in terms of technology and performance. The design brief was for a range of reels with which the world's fly fishers could take on the best that the largest rivers and widest oceans could throw at them… and win!
These classy new reels feature a precision milled CNC body and spool to reduce weight to the minimum, whilst retaining massive strength. The powerful, multi-disc, stacked drag system, uses a mix of stainless steel, carbon fibre and cork, to deliver a silky-smooth drag performance, with near zero start-up inertia. A fine-pitch, detented drag adjustment allows minute increases in drag pressure, from zero, to a class leading 6.5kg (14lb) at maximum drag and the whole drag assembly is completely sealed for saltwater use.
This new 'stacked drag disc' system is similar to that used in our original XS reels made by British Fly Reels, in that some discs are 'locked' and some are free to rotate, at their own speed. This not only allows for an ultra-smooth start up, when a fish takes, with the drag discs all starting at their own speed, but the multi-surface drag, provides an astonishing 44cm2 of drag surface area! Hard anodised in 'Satin Silver' for total chip and corrosion resistance.
