They have the same heavy duty, clean cut construction that Torque and Rush series reels have become known for, only with a few sweet additions. To start with two hybrid ceramic ball bearings and even more carbon fibre have been incorporated, adding to the silky smooth drag that all Galvan users are accustomed to. A watertight, easy to access hub has also been added encasing the entire drag system, leaving only anodized aluminium exposed to the elements. The new quick-turn knob allows for a super-quick spool release, as well as easy access to the drag system, and the Monster Grip handle provides assured accessibility. The Galvan Grip series reels are arguably some of the best reels on the market. We here at Frontier Fly Fishing believe that they are amongst the most beautiful reels on the market and with Galvan’s proven drag system, any angler looking for a lifelong investment in a reel, particularly a reel for use in the salt, would be hard pressed to find a better reel. Highly recommended by all the Frontier Fly Fishing staff members.
