NEWS, VIEWS & REVIEWS FROM FLY FISHING SNOWDONIA
I said in my original post, below, that this was a 'timeless classic'. Well it looks like it's time is up!
Such a shame this reel has been discontinued, it was one of my favourite reels.
The Vision GT reel is a timeless classic combining quality, elegance and functionality. It not only looks good but has features only found on much more expensive reels.
The disc drag will not only stop a rampant mule but has a waterproof seal, this combined with the triple anodised bronze finish makes the reel salt water resistant. The GT is machined from a single chunk of bar stock high grade aluminium and is very sturdy. The silent retrieve is complimented by a subdued, comforting click when line is pulled from the reel and the soft polyurethane handle is comfortable when fishing in cold climes. The reel comes with a neoprene case and spare spools won't break the bank. All in all a superb reel and great value for money.
Personally I really like these reels. I have more expensive reels but still turn to my trusty Vision GT; small, light but sturdy, well made, attractive and nice to hold
