A premium reel requires a world-class brake, plenty of line capacity, a light but still solid construction and last but definitely not least a unique design to clearly separate it from all the other reels on the market. Those were our main targets with XO fly reels.

56 and 78 are lightweight, large-arbour reels with well tested sealed disc brake design.

The 89 is the ideal size reel for heavier single hand rods and Switch rods. With thin backing and monofilament running line it has enough capacity even for smaller double handers. The brake system is a slightly tamed version of the bigger and more brutal 910 & 1012 reels allowing us to make the ideal weight reel for the purpose with big enough maximum brake force. The reel’s frame and spool are machined elegantly thin for weight reduction but the “wine glass look” construction itself makes this reel super rigid.

The big brothers are fused with bomb proof & powerful brake. The brake mechanism has been used for over 20 years with countless huge fish under its belt. On these reels this proven brake mechanism is sealed even better than in its predecessors. These bigger reels are aimed for heavy salmon and saltwater use. The brake power increases very linearly within 2,5 rounds, giving you impressive 8kg maximum force. The waterproofing utilises axle seals from German Ina and all bearings are from Japan.
