8-Weight Challenge

  1. Tibor Signature Fly Reel Review

    Tibor Signature Fly Reel Review
    The Tibor Signature is the latest creation from master reel designer Ted “Tibor” Juracsik. It's a landmark reel, not only because it's new, but also because it's Tibor's first sealed drag, but it's also the world's first cork sealed drag. Ted has one more trick up his sleeve - it's also the only sealed drag that can be taken apart at home for easy service. Here's how it stacks up.
  2. Redington Delta 7/8 Fly Reel Review

    Redington Delta 7/8 Fly Reel Review
    Redington Reels are synonymous with value. The Redington Delta is the latest reel in their "big game" line, but will it measure up?
  3. Cheeky Mojo 425 Fly Reel Review

    Cheeky Mojo 425 Fly Reel Review
    Not a lot of people have heard of Cheeky. They are one of the newest reels on the market - but they are certainly making a splash. The Cheeky Mojo 425 is their "inshore" model, designed for 8-9 weight lines. The reel looks great, but how does it perform?
  4. Sage 6080 Fly Reel Review

    Sage 6080 Fly Reel Review
    The Sage 6000 Series fly reel has long been Sage's benchmark saltwater fly reel. While Sage is well known for their fly rods, not a lot has been said about their reels. With the 8000 Pro as the new flagship series, we knew that the 6000 wasn't likely to be their top performer, but we were still curious to see how it measured up.
  5. Abel Super 7/8N Fly Reel Review

    Abel Super 7/8N Fly Reel Review
    The Abel Super 8, along with the Tibor Everglades, made up the "classic" portion of our 8-weight challenge. These reels have not only stood the test of time, but have countless world records to their credit. How do they stack up against more modern competition? Let's find out.
  6. Sage 8000 Pro Series Fly Reel Review

    Sage 8000 Pro Series Fly Reel Review
    Sage introduced the 8000 Pro series last year at IFTD. We got to check out some of the great upgrades from the 2012 6000 Series. Since then, we've been eager to get our hands on one.
  7. Sage 4200 Fly Reel Review

    Sage 4200 Fly Reel Review
    The Sage 4280 is one of my favorite reels from Sage. It's light, looks good, feels great, and comes with a lifetime warranty. Let's find out if it will hold up to the rigors of saltwater use.
  8. Lamson Guru Fly Reel Review

    Lamson Guru Fly Reel Review
    The Lamson Guru was one if the best performing value-priced reels in our test. Want made in the USA quality in a great looking, super light package with a tiny price tag? This is your stop.
  9. Tibor Everglades Fly Reel Review

    Tibor Everglades Fly Reel Review
    Of all the reels we tested, the Tibor Everglades is the one most likely to be passed on to the next generation. It's beautiful and simple and made in the USA.
  10. Sage 1800 Fly Reel Review

    Sage 1800 Fly Reel Review
    When we tallied the results to our recent 8-weight Challenge, no one expected that Sage's entry-level reel would out perform ever other reel by Sage. We were shocked when a reel that costs a mere $139 tied for 4th place! Thus, the Sage 1800 Fly Reel earns our coveted "Best Buy".
