This high value, mid-priced, large arbor reel has all the technological hallmarks of its counterpart the Torque, while capturing the essence of the original Rush Series reels. Originally created in 2005, the Rush Series reels quickly garnered a following among discerning anglers. Galvan listened to these anglers and in 2012 they reduced the reel’s weight and modified the look, giving it some of the features of their revered OB reel. Galvan altered the porting pattern on the spool face and opened up the back of the frame to their recognized, open back, tri-spoke design. These changes reduced the weight, sharpened the appearance and maintained the ruggedness the original Rush Series reels were valued for. This ruggedness and durable construction is the most prominent feature of the Rush Light. It can take one beating after another and continue to perform with flawless reliability. Whether it’s the one reel you buy for life, the reel you use to guide clients, or the reel in the quiver of the hardest core anglers, the Rush Light does not disappoint in form or function. Highly recommended by the staff members at Frontier Fly Fishing. The Galvan Rush Light won third place in The Yellowstone Angler’s 2016 reel shootout, outperforming other reel brands that would cost twice the price.
