The XLV custom models are built to the same exacting standards and quality as the XLV trout and salmon family of reels. Large arbor design, anodised and with unqiue Vision design features, the XLV custom range offer exceptional performance in a neat package.
NYMPH 4/5: The XLV Nymph a proper disc brake package, a real large-arbour design and an EVA handle which provides a solid grip even in wet conditions. All moving parts are greased with SKF's water resistant bearing grease.The Nymph reel is narrow and has ultra large arbour for quick line retrieve. It has a full body rim preventing thin nymph lines slipping wrong places and causing jams. Brake has been modified for lighter tippets and is super smooth. It also has a 360-degree adjustment. (Etched nymph design)
NYMPH & DRY 5/6: Super narrow and super large arbour reel for modern nymph and dry fly fisherman. Thanks to the large arbour, you can quickly reel in the loose line for fighting the big ones. Weightwise this reel is designed to balance the longer, light line weight rods and it does it perfectly. The drag is made smoothness in mind and the maximum force wasn’t the key factor, therefore this is superb reel for thin tippets. Matt black appearance doesn’t scare the fish and it looks good on all rods. (Etched caddis design)
KUST: The #7/8 ‘Kust’ has the ‘V’ heraldic design and modern look that will complement our lighter salt rods.
MAMA: The #8/9 ‘Mama’ is designed to complement the look and styling of our Big mama range of premium pike rods.
SWITCH: The perfect choice for modern switch rods. With its capacity it takes any switch line, no matter if it is a full line or a shooting head system. The full rim is there to eliminate snags when using thin monofilament type running lines as well as providing rigid strength to optimise performance when fighting larger fish. The weight of the reel is matched to balance the Switch rods of 11’-12’6” in length.
LOHI SALMON: The full rim Lohi reel is a sturdier and heavier addition to XLV family. It’ll be the choice for rods longer than 13’ and its brake system is capable of handling all anadromous fish species. Thanks to its corrosion proof construction it is a more affordable option for saltwater use too. There is enough capacity for heavy shooting head systems or 10-12 SW lines with loads of backing.
