9-10-11 Wt. Fly Reel
After years of development, field trials and testing, the team at IRT® Reels is excited to introduce its latest innovation in reel design – The 9-10-11 Weight Fly Reel. Built for anglers, by anglers, this reel solves many of the practical and mechanical failures of the traditional design that fishermen have been plagued with for decades.
The most notable improvement is the relocation of the drag knob from the outside of the reel to the inside. This allows the angler to adjust drag without having to switch hands. These reels include an anti-reverse mechanism with a disengaged handle that cuts down on wildly spinning handle knobs, which can smack your knuckles and cause injury. Our carbon fiber Kevlar drag system is capable of handling over 50 lbs. of maximum drag and limits backlash. This reel also incorporates a stainless-steel trip arm that can be easily toggled between a casting and fighting drag. Drag adjustment can be handled two distinct ways: the primary drag adjustment is controlled with the drag knob, which maximizes pressure on the fish and prevents the line from bird nesting. For fine tuning, drag can be adjusted by depressing the handle, allowing the sportsman to fight fish off the reel and limit tippet break off. Even though these features eliminate the need for “palming” the reel, it still is an option.
Using the same Power Grip technology found in our Spinning Reels, this patent-pending design positions the reel to allow for hand placement along multiple locations on the rod, adjusting the weighting of the reel to perfectly balance on the rod, while providing greater leverage for casting.
The IRT® 9-10-11 Weight Fly Reel will become your new go-to reel for medium-heavy freshwater and saltwater species. This reel is a formidable opponent to any species, including Tarpon, Redfish, and Salmon. With the versatility to stand up to some of the fastest predators in the water, the IRT® 9-10-11 Weight Fly Reel will make for the perfect addition to your fishing arsenal.
All of our Fly Reels come in a travel case with a foam insert that perfectly fits your reel, a tube of grease, lubricant, wrench, and microfiber towel. Additionally, every fly reel comes with both the Traditional and Power Grip so you can properly adjust the weighting to match your rod without purchasing a separate reel.
