Signed by Master reel designer and fly fisherman Ted "Tibor" Juracsik, the elegant and efficient design of the Tibor Signature Series consists of very few parts. It features a completely ventilated spool and frame that keeps the reel cool during long, smoking runs and provides a robust incoming and outgoing clicker sound. Their unique mechanical clutch system allows easy change from right to left hand retrieve and features Tibor's QuickChange spool system which involves only a single moving part. The frame is also designed to accommodate one of the popular gamefish engravings or a custom image.
The Tibor Signature Series breakthrough sealed drag system is waterproof, self-maintaining and features the smoothest and strongest drag in the industry. The drag system constantly applies seal pressure while in free spool so the reel will never overrun while stripping line and is also equipped with their legendary sily smooth micro grain cork which is constantly lubricated. On the rare occasion that maintenance is necessary, the system can be easily disassembled, yet still remain under warranty- unlike many other sealed-drag reels on the market.
Proudly made in the U.S.A. and warranted for life, Tibor Reels' new Signature Series delivers the same tough standards that have earned Tibor over 700 world records- more than any other fly reel.
