    The New re-designed Hydros Fly Reel for 2020, features a lightweight bar-stock aluminum machined frame and spool, fully sealed drag, and best-in-class line pickup per revolution, buttery-smooth startup inertia and a narrower spool that reduces line stacking. The New 2020 Hydros reel incorporates an improved seal carbon and stainless drag along with a reduction in weight balance for lighter fly rods. From Freshwater to the Saltwater Flats, the New Orvis Hydros IV will match any fishing application and have the stopping power for the larger species in our waters. The newly upgraded sealed drag gives the angler a smoother and more powerful reel for landing steelhead, salmon, bass, bonefish or other 7-9wt fly rod species.

    Quality mid-range reel

    Quality mid-range reel. While I’m admittedly partial to the discontinued SL version, this is a solid reel and worth every penny.

    using this reel with my 7wt TFO Axiom II-X and man it balances perfect! This reel has great retrieval speed and just feel plain tough! Just got a Hydros V that I will be pairing with my 8WT for yearly Florida trip next motnh! Well worth the money.

    Made for Redfish

    I bought this reel to pair with my 8wt Axiom II-X and they balance incredibly well together. This reel has a super fast retrieval rate and comes with a completely sealed drag system. It’s made to do exactly what I bought it for; to chase redfish in the flats.

    Even better than the first version
    Alex (Cambridge (MA)) | May 4th, 2021
    I also own the first version of the hydros sl iv. This was already a great reel but the new one is even better: much lighter and a waterproof drag. Really great reel for the price!

    Great Reel

    I love this reel. Big and strong, good brake and plenty of room for line. And it looks good. I have one for a seven wt line and one for an 8 wt. These are my go to winter spawning reels for Taupo and I'm looking forward to using them in a month or two. Hard to go past and a really good price. Highly recommended.

    Still one of the best reels in this price range!
    Andy (MD) | April 13th, 2021
    I had two of the previous generation and I have two of this generation. The Hydros is truly in a class of its own IMO. Yes it's made overseas but it's a great reels. No noticeable start up with the drag, nice drag adjustment and it had a decent sound. The finish is a very nice matte anodizing. I have have the purple and blue colors and they are amazing in person. If you can't or don't want to spend $400+ on a reel take a good look at the Hydros. I love how they are doing limited color runs now too.
