A beautiful new design and extreme weight reduction was our goal to continue the Deschutes line of reels for 2015. The new Deschutes I (3/4 Weight) fly reel is 6061 aircraft aluminum CNC construction. With the standard FFB silent retrieve and a push-button spool release, this new Deschutes will amaze you in construction, performance and especially weight. A mere 3.77 ounces, the new Deschutes I reel has an outside spool diameter of 2.91 inches and a spool width of 0.83 inches. The original Deschutes I reel was 4.93 ounces and had a spool diameter of 2.93 inches and a spool width of 0.86 inches. More than a full ounce of weight reduction is already a plus but the new components and drag system have been improved in our 3rd generation Deschutes reel. One-click drag adjustment is a common theme in all our reels and the new Deschutes V3 is no exception. The new Deschutes will come in a new brushed nickel color with a black reel foot. As always, since 2007, we have kept the price point the same as the product has continued to improve. $79.95 gets you the reel and a reel case and they are available now! Add a spare spool for $30 from the drop down menu for a $10 savings off the regular price of $40. For a limited time, choose a FREE fly line with this reel!
