Alfa ARCTIC 3 Reel
ARCTIC 3 is an outstanding reel for trout fly fishing. It handles easily lines up to 6-weight and you still have a good room for backing when that large trout hits your fly. Arctic 3 reel is a great match for 9′ rods in 5-6wt, as well as for the nymphing rods 10′-11′ in 3wt and 4wt.
This large arbor, full-frame reel is made from a single block of 6061 aerospace aluminum. It has a modern, multi-disc carbon drag system with powerful braking power – 7.5 kg (16 lb) drag power. You get maximum drag power with ultra-smooth starting friction. Carbon is recognized to be the most efficient material for dissipating extreme heat without wear. Carbon does not compress, deteriorate, melt, or burn, making the ARCTIC drag system high performance, stable and durable.
ARCTIC 3 reel has a full-frame design so no line can escape from the spool during fishing. This is a key feature when fishing with modern, small diameter backing lines like the Alfa Gel-Spun backing line. Also equally important on Euro nymphing where long leaders are used. The unique drag knob is one of the key features of this reel. This drag knob follows the natural grip of the finger and gives you a better feeling for easy turning of the drag knob.
