Bauer reels are designed and handcrafted in the USA and come with a lifetime warranty. All are precision machined to tolerances down to 1/1OOOth of an inch from 100% aerospace bar stock aluminum and stainless steel for maximum strength and corrosion resistance. The spool and drag system rotate on sealed, precision stainless steel ball bearings.
FULLY SEALED CARBON FIBER DRAG SYSTEM
Carbon Fiber is the ideal choice for a drag. Unlike cork, its performance is not dependent on lubrication. And unlike polymers, carbon isn’t affected by temperature changes. The Bauer Carbon Fiber system delivers silky smooth and consistent performance in all conditions. No maintenance required.
BAUER PATENTED CLUTCH
Our clutch provides a seamless engagement of the drag and a silent retrieve. Manufactured from non-corrosive materials, it’s far more durable than the roller-clutch bearings commonly used in other reels.
LARGE ARBOR DESIGN PERFORMANCE ADVANTAGE
Through increased width and diameter, our reels feature the optimum spool depth to width ratio for enhanced large arbor performance.
