Tibor Riptide Fly Reel
Introducing the Riptide Fly Reel, the reel that truly sets a new standard for fly reel technology and dependability. Designed by world-renowned fly reel engineer, Ted Juracsik, the legendary Riptide Reel is the only reel you need if you’re into chasing Stripers, Drum, Large Salmon, Tarpon, Dorado or Shark with a fly rod. Transformed from solid aluminum bar stock into a high-performing, saltwater reel right here in the USA, the Riptide is designed with a hard coated, aluminum main gear for minimal heat build-up and great strength while both the main gear and spool rotate flawlessly on three sealed precision, stainless steel ball bearings. The concept behind this entire reel is less is more, and this is very evident in the Riptides’s absolutely flawless impregnated cork disc drag system which is the smoothest, strongest and most reliable system ever developed. Weighing in at a mere 9.5 oz and offering a tremendous line capacity of 200 yards, the Riptide’s large arbor design significantly enhances the rate of line retrieval which is critical when you’re trying to control defiant sport fish. Made in USA.
