The Orvis Mirage Fly Reel is a perfect choice to put the brakes on the biggest, most aggressive species. Orvis Mirage is an ultra-durable reel with a powerful fish stopping drag system. A technologically superior reel conceived and designed from the ground up and built in New England by American craftsmen to battle angry fish and laugh in the face of corrosive saltwater environments. The new Mirage features a sealed and maintenance-free carbon and stainless steel disc drag system with an aggressive knurled drag knob that goes from zero to full drag in a single drag knob rotation. Patent-pending ball and ramp drag mechanism provides a smooth turning drag that follows a non-linear curve as the drag knob is turned to give smoother adjustments in the fishing and fish-fighting range.
The Orvis Mirage reel is a super large arbor for increased retrieve rates and reduction in line coil. Machined in the USA from strong, yet lightweight 6061 T6 aluminum barstock. Other kiler features include an ergonomically designed, machined aluminum handle, quick release spool, easy conversion from left to right-hand retrieve, and military-spec type III hard coat anodizing. A titanium shaft adds strength without additional weight, a fully radiused reel foot prevents kinked leaders, while a low-profile counterweight won't catch fingers or fly lines. The new Mirage reel is absolutely beautiful, indestructable, and the very best reel Orvis has ever made.
