The Danielsson Control Fly Reels Review

1. Anti-reverse (your knuckles are safe!) As large fish are taking line, only the spool rotates..not the handle.

2. Built-in “Fighting Brake” in the handle. In traditional anti-reverse reels, the force used cranking the line in can never exceed the strength of the drag system~the fish runs, the reel is in charge. The Danielsson Control reels incorporate what they call a “unique power converter that automatically increases resistance (drag) when you crank the handle, and reduces it when you let the handle go.” Start to finish, the angler is in charge.

3. Control reels have their spools on the frame side. This protects your fingers from the spool when a BIG fish runs at high speeds. This also makes spool change very quick, something not common with anti-reverse reels.

Should your next big adventure find you chasing muskie, salmon or bonefish…or even the toughest game fish fly rodders tangle with like tarpon or sailfish~the Danielsson Control reels put the odds in your favor.
