Orvis' new large arbor Mirage fly reel combines superior performance and a great price to put it in a class all by itself. Using the same principles employed for the brakes of fighter jets, the carbon to stainless drag gives smooth, consistent, and infinitely-adjustable stopping power—from free spooling to a dead stop.
Mirage LA III for line weights 5-8; 4.8 oz., 3 1/2" diameter.
- A completely sealed and maintenance-free drag, impervious to saltwater, dirt, grit and other corrosive elements to last longer and hold up to real world abuse.
- A positive-click drag knob for accurate and repeatable drag settings.
- True large arbor performance picks up line fast to give you the edge over all fresh and saltwater big game fish: from steelhead to bonefish, stripers, tarpon, tuna, marlin, and sails.
- Crafted of strong yet lightweight anodized 6061 T6 aluminum with a heavily-ventilated spool to shed weight yet keep its strength.
- Special handle shape reduces line from catching.
