Great reel! Balances well with my Euro Rod! Very happy with the quality and the price!

A very high quality euro nymphing reel with (3) removable 1 oz weights to dial in the perfect balancing on the rod. Reelflyrod has the best price on the reel as well. The Garnet / Gunmetal color way is sweet too.

I am pairing this with my Redington Strike 106 3WT and Echo Shadow X 11 3WT. I have found that the large arbor and full frame to be great qualities. I love the black color and I pair it with black backing. For a stealth color when trying to working certain smaller runs and streams. I think this reel is great if you don't want to spend $200 more for the top end gear.

I have an Echo Shadow II 3wt that I use for euro-nymphing, and decided to get an appropriate reel for euro-nymph specific line setups.
The reel is physically large, and a bit heavy, even without the removable weights. I took them off for using my Shadow as-is, but I can see adding them if I was using the competition kit, or the 4wt.
The reel works well though, and has a solid feel, unlike the Echo
The "Tilt" logo appeared a bit garish in the online pictures, but in reality seems fairly subdued, at least in black. (the name just rubs me wrong for some reason, but I guess as long as I am euro-nymphing, aesthetics are out the window anyway ;) )

Great Euro nymphing reel. Use it with my Beulah 10' 3 wt. Great pair. Very useful to have the additional weights to balance the rod.

I use this reel a lot. I appreciate the cost performance and the performance of the function. The weakness I think is that sand easily gets into the gaps in the spool. That's something I should be careful about.

This reel is perfect for nymphing. The weights make it versatile but I found it perfect out the box to counter balance my 11ft rod. the guys in the shop strung it up with a rasta style backing. Looks sick.

As always top notch customer service! Reel came in quick fully rigged ready to fish! Absolute beautiful reel, the counter balance adjustability is a amazing. The reel paired perfect for my Hardy ultralite LL. Can’t wait to hit the stream with it in a few weeks!
