LX Maintenance Manual (514 KB)

Designed, machined and hand assembled in Canada


Description:

Every LX fly reel is designed with a large arbor spool to enhance retrieval speed and reduce the need for backing. The spool (and frame) are heavily ported to reduce weight without compromising structural integrity. The LX Series also has a large hardcoat anodized aluminum clutch with graphite impregnated cork drag surface for buttery smooth action and enough stopping power to straighten a hook.

Features:

  • Counter Balanced Spool - To keep the reel stable during high-speed runs, every LX spool is both externally and internally counterweighted, which balances the mass of the handle assembly and the clicker assembly.
  • Drag Adjustment - The frame-side drag adjustment knob is buttery smooth and infinitely adjustable.
  • Right or Left Hand - Easy conversion between right and left hand retrieve without tools.
