In new unused condition and in full working order, can be fished both left and right-hand retrieve.
With more fish-stopping drag surface than any fly fishing reel made, the Vortex® VO2 is designed, inside and out, to be the most reliable big-game fly reel on the market. The VO2’s performance advantages arise from the placement of drag surfaces on the fly fishing reel’s outside radius, maximising surface area. The VO2’s huge composite cork-to-Rulon® drag surface is better able to dissipate the heat generated by a hard-running fish than any other drag system. Hot materials expand, changing your drag tension just at that time when you need consistency the most. With the VO2 fly fishing reel in hand, your drag setting will remain consistent throughout the battle. And a larger drag surface ensures consistent performance over a wide range of settings, each indexed stop increasing or decreasing drag pressure in predictable increments. When it comes to landing the fish of a lifetime, you can make no better choice than the VO2 fly reel.
