Bauer fly reels are designed and handcrafted in the USA and come with a lifetime warranty. They are precision-machined to tolerances down to 1/1OOOth of an inch from aerospace bar stock aluminum and stainless steel for maximum strength and corrosion resistance. The spool and carbon fiber drag system rotate on sealed precision stainless steel ball bearings.
FULLY SEALED CARBON FIBER DRAG SYSTEM
Carbon Fiber is the perfect choice for a fly reel 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 is fully sealed and delivers silky smooth and consistent performance in all conditions. No maintenance required.
THE BAUER CLUTCH
Our clutch provides a uniquely smooth and seamless engagement of the drag and a silent retrieve. Manufactured from non-corrosive materials, it is far more durable and reliable than the roller clutch bearing system commonly used in other fly reels.
