An award-winning design, the Galvan Torque ranks among the most durable of all fly reels. Introduced in 2003, the Torque’s remarkable design remains unsurpassed for performance and durability over time. One of the first characteristics you’ll notice is the beautiful curvature of the machining in both spool and frame, resulting in surprising lightness. Our favorite aspect of the Torque Series is the drag system, constructed from heat and wear-resistant thermoplastic materials. The drag has an enormous range and registers with subtle clicking as you turn the knob. It’s both pleasing and effective. We particularly recommend these reels for higher line weight trout rods and saltwater fly fishing. The Torque Series is thoroughly anodized and completely salt-safe.
