    ORVIS HYDROS SL IV FLY REEL : 7-9WT


    The Orvis Hydros SL IV will be the perfect match for any 7-9wt fly rod used for trout, bass, steelhead, salmon and even bonefish on the flats. At 7.4 oz, this reel will balance any of today's lighter weight fly rods. Orvis Hydros SL Fly Reels are machined from bar-stock aluminum and feature a buttery-smooth drag startup and a narrower spool both increasing line pickup while reducing line stacking. The lightweight frame and spool, fully sealed drag, and best-in-class line pickup per revolution make the Hydros SL one of the best reels for the money in durability, drag system, and weight. From trout to saltwater flats, the Orvis Hydros SL will match any fishing application and has the stopping power for larger species.


    FEATURES:

    • Super-Large arbor for up to 12% increased retrieval from older Hydros Models
    • Fully sealed drag-clutch bearing
    • Nearly 3X stronger drag with zero start-up inertia
    • Narrow spool helps eliminate line stacking
    • Improved tolerances for smooth operation
    • Increased backing capacity
    • Colors: Black Nickel or Citron
    • Size: IV (7-9wt)
    • Weight: 7.4oz
    • Diameter: 4 1/4"
    • Capacity: 20-lb & WF8: 200 yards

    Fit and Finish are Superb

    I purchased this reel along with a TFO Axiom 2 7wt rod. It is an excellent combination. The fit and finish cold not be better. No side movement or wobble. Reeling in is smooth as possible. The drag appears to function as it should although I have not put it through the paces yet. I though the IV may have been to large but the weight balances the rod perfectly.

    I have the III and the IV and both are superb. They are solid and bottom line they work extremely well. Love this reel! Don't think about it just buy it.

    I bought this reel back in Dec. from Reel Fly Rods store on Amazon before ever hearing about Reel Fly Rods. I bought it along with a 9ft 8wt Recon Rod. I ended up going with the Citron color. I took this rod and reel combo to Slovenia and had a blast. The reel is great and sealed nicely. The directions that came with it easily allowed me to switch it to right hand real. The reel looks sharp and has not let me down. Orvis builds great reals and makes exceptional rods. Cant go wrong with the Orvis warranty either.

    Loved the price and the value for an orvis fly reel, using this for fresh and salt water on a sage one 8 wt. No glitches once so ever !!! Love the warranty that orvis offers too, just cannot be beat!!!

    Great Reel for a the best price anywhere. Orvis ha been around for a long time and there's a reason for that. They build quality products for reasonable prices. Bought the SL IV in Citron and could not be happier. Caught a 36" snook on my 6th cast with it, got it to reel and the Hydros dod not disappoint. I purposely wanted to fight a fish and see what this drag system could do. I was very impressed and just a quick rinse to get rid of any saltwater residue and it's ready to go.

    The reviews speak for themselves. With a great sealed drag system and light weight, robust build, you can’t go wrong for the money. The citron color looks great. My only regret was the citron color was a limited run and the spare spools are sold out. Balances well with my TFO BVK 8wt.

    I purchased an Orvis SL IV reel to replace one of my backup reels. After one look at it, I knew I would want another! Great machining, lightweight, and the large arbor picks up line incredibly fast. Not to mention the ridiculously strong sealed drag! It really balances well with my 8wt Meridian. I ended up buying two more to replace the reels on two other rods. They’re that good!
