    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 V will match any fishing application and have the stopping power for the larger species in our waters. The battle tested Hydros V is the perfect salmon, steelhead, bonefish, permit, or smaller tarpon reel for a 9-11wt rod.

    Great Value

    Great reel. I had one for a 5 wt rod and added this one to go on a 9wt for saltwater. For the money a great buy for someone that fishes saltwater a couple times a year. Performed great.

    I've four Hydros reels on different outfits for nearby every situation on the waters. It's a pleasure to see how these reels work! Amazing.

    Great reel for price

    I bought this reel for a 10 wt rod that I use only a couple times a year in the salt. I wanted a solid reel without breaking the bank and this recommendation was spot on. Great looking reel with smooth retrieve and strong drag. I bought the extra spool too

    Needed a little work

    When I got this reel is was not smooth and it was a bit noisy but once I put a small amount of grease where the anti-freespool pin is the reel was smooth and quiet. The zero start-up inertia on the drag is great and the drag is super powerful. It balances a 8wt 10ft TFO BVK rod with a heavy streamer line really well.

    My Orvis Hydros V is a great reel. I put it on my Orvis Recon 10wt rod and they go together perfectly. Solid drag and smooth action. Completely satisfied and as always with Reelflyrod's service.

    Large arbor makes line retrieval fast and easy. New design is appealing, but I wish they kept the older models drag knob. New knob is difficult to dial in with gloves on.
