The story of the SG started with a passion for salt-water fishing and the impulse to create a reliable reel. After racing and designing bikes, Founder and president, Wes Seigler moved back to Virginia.
Living in Reedville, right on the Chesapeake Bay, Wes got back into salt water fishing. On several fishing trips he found himself frequently repairing broken reels. The constant headaches led to the founding of Release Reels when Wes finally said, "Why not make my own?" So begins the story of the SG.

The first reels started production in China in 2009. Moving the company back stateside came about after having issues with quality and stolen ideas. The SG, after a redesign, started production in 2011 in the US. The cost of outsourcing parts began to rise, so in 2012 the factory got its start after acquiring two used CNC machines.
The SG was developed with the mindset of being able to handle anything in the Chesapeake Bay. Working with customers and recognizing feedback leads to adjustments and helps improve the reel. Being able to control the quality of production on most of the parts for the reel streamed the evolution of the SG.

The success of the SG influenced the development of our second model the LG. Since then, the company has continued to grow adding more models including star drags to meet the demands of various fishing styles. All SEiGLER Reels follow the same model, which is to design simple, reliable, durable fishing reels that are 100% made in the US.. and it all started with the SG.
