Snowbee Prestige Gold Cassette Fly Reel Range
Complementing the Snowbee class-leading Prestige G-XS fly rods, the new Prestige Gold fly reels provide an ultra-lightweight reel option for superb balance on today’s lightweight carbon fly fishing rods.
The Snowbee Prestige Gold Cassette Fly Reels are precision CNC-machined from solid, high grade aircraft aluminium bar stock, the benefits to you they are able to take a lot more wear and tear, and if looked after should last a life-time. The CNC design programming ensures that the maximum amount of metal is removed, for the lightest weight possible whilst retaining optimum strength and rigidity.
These precision Prestige Gold Fly Reels are fitted with a sealed, multi-disc cork and stainless steel centre drag, which offers powerful drag performance to cope with the hardest running fish. However, the multi-disc design provides minimal start-up inertia to prevent break-offs with ‘smash takes’ and allows the use of the finest tippets. The large arbor design allows faster retrieve, more consistent drag performance and minimal line memory. Internal parts on these Fly Reels, such as the main spindle and clutch bearing, are manufactured from stainless steel for corrosion resistance even in salt-water, while the precision one-way roller clutch bearing provides instant drag control when that ‘smash take’ catches you by surprise. 
The Snowbee Prestige Gold Fly Reel is finished in a beautiful, understated satin gold colour, giving these quality reels a classy look. The hard gold anodised finish provides superb saltwater and chip resistance. The comfortable spool handle and counter weight are machined from aluminium and hard anodised in a contrasting black colour. The counter-weight (see pictures) features another Snowbee innovation – a machined groove, tightly fitted with two small rubber O-rings. This allows you to slide your tippet down between them to hold it securely, while you are walking to the boat or bank. The quick release spool and simple left to right hand conversion, ensures the Prestige Gold reels will provide a long, untroubled fishing life.
This concise new range of Snowbee Prestige Gold Fly Reels covers all requirements from the smallest brook/stream fishing up to salmon, sea-trout and saltwater. Complete with a dark red neoprene reel case, these fly fishing reels offer unmatched performance coupled with real value for money
