Dialing in Excellence:

SEiGLER's Lever Drag Mastery
First and foremost it is about precision. With a lever drag system, you have finer control over the amount of pressure applied to the fish during the fight. This level of adjustability allows for more accurate settings tailored to the size and strength of your target.
The design ensures a linear and reliable release of line, reducing the risk of sudden jerks that might occur with other drag systems. This is crucial when dealing with powerful and unpredictable fish.

Engineered for anglers seeking unmatched performance and durability.

How to Adjust the Preset Knob

  1. Free Position: Always start with the lever in the free position, towards the tip of the rod.
  2. Clockwise for More Pressure: To increase the maximum drag pressure, turn the preset knob clockwise. Each click adds a bit more power.
  3. Counter Clockwise for Less Pressure: Need less pressure? No problem. Turn the preset knob counter-clockwise. Each click decreases the drag, allowing for a more refined setting.
  4. Small Increments: Make adjustments in small increments, ideally one to three clicks at a time. Here's a pro tip: Each click roughly equals a pound at maximum pressure, giving you precise control over your settings.
  5. Refine as Needed: Test the drag after each adjustment. Refine the settings until you achieve the perfect balance for your fishing style and conditions.

How To Applying Drag Pressure

  1. Set Your Preset: Before anything else, make sure your reel is preset to the maximum output you desire. This is your baseline for the lever's functionality.
  2. Free or Stripping Position: When you're ready to use the reel, push the lever forward to the "Free or Stripping Position." This is your starting point, allowing you to effortlessly manage the line.
  3. Apply Drag: Now, if you need to adjust the drag, pull the lever backward towards yourself. The motion is smooth and intuitive, letting you apply just the right amount of drag for the situation.

SEIGLER Fly Reels: Asymmetrical spool designed to strengthen and enhance the fishing experience. Head-on view of our New BFN fly fishing reel 10wt
Why Are Our Fly Spool Arbors Shaped
The asymmetrical spool feature on your fishing reels is indeed significant for line management. By allowing the line to automatically lay on the down-facing side, it reduces stress and torque on the shaft when under load. The design, with the inner side of the spool lower than the outer side, is akin to putting a book on the inner side of a cantilevered shelf, distributing pressure more evenly. This not only improves the overall performance of the reel but also enhances the longevity of the components, making it an appealing feature for anglers seeking efficient and durable equipment.

What is Start Up Inertia?
Why is it So Important in Fly fishing Reels
Start-up inertia refers to the resistance a fishing reel experiences when initially pulling the fishing line. It can cause a jump or pulse, affecting the smoothness of the fishing experience. Your innovative drag clutch, utilizing carbon fiber and stainless materials with a proprietary method, eliminates start-up inertia. This means that when the line pulls off under pressure, users won't experience the typical jump or pulse, providing a smoother and more efficient fishing reel experience. This unique feature sets your reels apart by enhancing performance and offering a seamless fishing encounter.
