A PREMIUM REEL REQUIRES A WORLD-CLASS BRAKE, PLENTY OF LINE
CAPACITY, A LIGHT BUT STILL SOLID CONSTRUCTION AND LAST BUT
DEFINITELY NOT LEAST A UNIQUE DESIGN TO CLEARLY SEPARATE IT FROM
ALL THE OTHER REELS ON THE MARKET. THOSE WERE OUR MAIN TARGETS
WITH XO FLY REELS.
89 - an additional size to the XO reel family. The 89 is the
ideal size reel for heavier single hand rods and Switch
rods. With thin backing and monofilament running line
it has enough capacity even for smaller double handers.
The brake system is a slightly tamed version of the bigger
and more brutal 910 & 1012 reels allowing us to make the
ideal weight reel for the purpose with big enough maxi-
mum brake force. The reel’s frame and spool are mach-
ined elegantly thin for weight reduction but the “wine
glass look” construction itself makes this reel super rigid.
