Leland on the Red Truck Premium 7/8 Reel
Bonefish, stripers and steelhead might want to read up on this reel to be prepared. Sized to do battle with larger freshwater and smaller saltwater fish, the Premium 7/8 is perfect for what most people do with a heavier-weight fly rod'chase things that go fast. For this reason, we designed our Premium 7/8 to hold ample backing for long-running fish. The butter-smooth cork drag is infinitely adjustable, so you can dial in the perfect drag pressure. Sealed bearing races are impervious to saltwater and the anodized finish means years of hard use and fast cleaning. Simply put, you'd have to come up with something insanely stupid to stop this reel from doing its job.
Strap this reel to one of our Premium or Diesel fly rods and get fishing. Don't worry if you don't yet own a Red Truck fly rod, as studies have shown this reel also works well on any quality brand fly rod, too.
Finally, for those who own a lighter weight two-handed or switch rod, make sure to take another look. Here's your new favorite fly reel.
