Orvis Hydros SL Fly Reel
Building on the success of the Hydros Series reels, the Orvis Company has created a beefed-up line for saltwater anglers targeting trophies. The Orvis Hydros SL Fly Reels feature a "super-large" arbor that consistently yields much quicker retrieve rates, resulting in up to 12% increase in line recovery per cast. That makes a significant difference when casting large baits and battling big, powerful fish! To complement that, Orvis has installed a drag system that's nearly 3 times stronger, with zero start-up inertia. Completely sealed, the drag incorporates its own clutch bearing inside to ensure immediate engagement on the hookset. With a narrow spool for less line stacking, increased backing capacity, and extra-close tolerances for total-system smoothness, the Hydros SL reels are truly built for bear.

It's good.I like it. I live out here in Iliamna and Lake Clark Alaska in southwest alaska and you need a reel like this just to fight these big monster fish. These fish will rip up reels left and right. Monsters big ones.
Is this a reel for left hand wind or right hand wind.

Is this okay for Saltwater, plan to target striper and blues?
Asked by: ReelQuacker78
Yes, per the manufacturer, it is ideal for salt water, it is a super large arbor so it offers the fastest line retrieval rate Orvis can offer and has a fully sealed drag-clutch bearing to prevent salt from damaging it.
