Einarsson Invictus Fly Reels with Shock Absorbing Brake

Out of stock

Imagine that you are on the river bank, casting to a fish, shivering in readiness for the take. Suddenly you can feel your line stretching, your rod bends and the energy from the fish surges through your tackle. You are into the fight, as the synapses fire off in your brain the pleasure which every fly fishermen knows so well consumes you, holding you transfixed in the moment. Until you are snapped back to reality as the line breaks or the hook pulls out!
This is where the new Einarsson Invictus comes into play. The SAB drag system that Einarsson has designed reduces the required start up inertia by overcoming the breakaway friction as the reel spool begins to spin, alleviating both the shock and the brief delay in allowing line to be dispensed from the reel. This smoother delivery translates into more control at the take and during sudden strong runs.
Let’s wind back and look at the physics. When the fish pulls out line the fly rod bends and what actually happens is that the line, leader and rod are storing this energy. Modern fly reels then convert this stored energy from the fish into heat at the brake system, always with a measurable spike in brake away friction. The new patented Shock Absorbing Brake (SAB) ensures that the transition in the brake system is softer* compared to leading brands in the reel market.
