    The Bauer RX 5 Fly Reel is a premium large arbor reel with a gorgeous design. Precision CNC machined from aerospace grade bar stock aluminum, and stainless-steel components for corrosion resistance, maximum strength and flawless performance. Bauer RX Fly Reels feature a proven, completely sealed, maintenance-free, carbon fiber disc drag system that is incredibly smooth and powerful. Bauer RX Fly Reels are trusted by anglers around the world, and equipped with some of the best technology to deliver excellent performance and durability. 


    This Bauer RX 5 Fly Reel is hand crafted and flawlessly engineered in the USA, and features a completely sealed, self-lubricating drag system. The oversized carbon fiber disc powers a supercharged drag system that is super smooth and will handle the blistering runs from steelhead, bonefish, redfish, snook, permit, and largemouth bass. The Bauer RX 5 is the perfect choice to grace any premium 7-9wt rod, and balances perfectly with today's light fly rods. With zero start up inertia, and amazing stopping power, the RX will protect tippets, and has the smooth power to turn bigger fish before they run for cover or get into your backing. This is the perfect high-end, USA made freshwater/saltwater reel, and is hand crafted in Twin Bridges, MT.


    The larger RX 5, 6, and 7 reels were designed to handle and subdue extremely powerful fish such as tarpon, peacock bass, dorado, permit and other hard fighters that quickly prove whether a reel is up to the task. These RX reels feature stronger seals, a more powerful structure and a drag system that features multiple carbon discs with five times the surface area for maximum stopping power and control.

    Love these reels
    Ferenc Horvath (CO) | May 3rd, 2021
    After all I read about these reels for years, I finally made the decision to go for them. I use a different brand for trout fishing, but I wanted something very solid for a trip to Argentina for Golden Dorado fishing ( if they ever lift the COVID related travel restrictions... ) March 2022. The trip organizer told me to make sure to get a very solid reel. So I bought two Bauer RX5's, each with an extra spool. I'll also be using these reels for Alaska in the future. The reels look and feel exactly as I expected. When I registered them, the call actually went to Twin Bridges, MT. I spoke with the same guy who registered my Winston Rods ( Bauer is owned by Winston ). The warranty for these reels is for life.
