One Word: Drag. Shilton Reels undeniably have the best drag of any fly reels.

Trusted by guides worldwide in some of the most extreme fishing conditions, such as the Seychelles, Shilton Reels were designed with one thing in mind – to enable fly anglers to fight and catch the strongest, toughest saltwater and freshwater gamefish in the world.

A premier sought-after South African brand, Shilton Reels were previously unavailable in the US market. Due to rising recognition and demand, Shilton and Flymen formed a partnership to bring Shilton Reels to the US.

Shilton Reels’ frames and spools are manufactured using top quality aluminum bar stock and the other components are machined from stainless steel. Polymers, carbon fiber, and cork are used to create the all-important clutch systems that take Shilton Reels’ drag to the next level and make We Stop Fish a reality.

Keith Rose-Innes, co-founder of Alphonse Fishing Co., a fly fishing lodge and guide service in The Seychelles, talks about Shilton Reels in Ep. 20 of The Flymen Fishing Co. Show.

NEW Full Color Anodized SR Series Reels Now Available for Pre-Order!

The Shilton SR Series is the latest addition to the already sterling range of Shilton reels. The reels in the SR range have been designed from the ground up with the saltwater angler in mind, rugged functionality with high grade 6082 T6 aluminium to give you the edge you need in any saltwater scenario. The increased overall diameter of the cork drag results in less start up inertia and more stopping power, as well one extra plunger (from 2 to 3) for extra drag engagement and durability.

The reels are available in:

  • SR9 (9 weight),
  • SR10 (10 weight)
  • SR12 (12 weight)

The SR Series is available in the standard black and titanium colors, as well as the NEW Full Color Anodized Reels, available in red, blue, purple, burnt gold, and turquoise.
