The Story

A great new die-cast fly reel design with a stealthy matte-gray powder-coat finish, the Clearwater Large Arbor Cassette is still the best performance-to-value reel in the industry. With a powerful inline, Carbon®-to-stainless, stacked disc drag that can hold its own with high-performance machined reels, the new Clearwater Large Arbor is easily converted to either left- or right-hand retrieve and has a positive click drag knob for consistent settings every time. Whether you're looking for your first large arbor or want a spare reel or two in the bag, this modern and updated Clearwater Large Arbor can handle anything a machined reel can and looks awesome doing it. Size IV Cassette (6-8 wt.). Cassette comes with two spare cassette spools. In gray.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all round reel I bought 2 of these reels to update my reservoir rods. They are both 6 weight rods and the reels are perfect. Very happy with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great reel. Thought it was about time I treated myself to a new reel. Really glad I chose this one with the 3 cassette spools to hold me dry, intermediate and sinking lines.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I needed a new reel I needed to replace my old Greys reel due to its age and ware and tear. My budget was a little limited so the cassette system was my choice. When the reel arrived,I was impressed with the build quality and the ease of removing the cassette, my old reel was a bit awkward. The simple clip and the ease in removal of the cassette allows line changes in seconds.The reel seemed a little small in comparison to my old reel however the large arbour cassette takes ample backing and line. The reel comes with three sturdy spools and a case that will allow you to carry the reel and three lines. Spare spools can be purchased for around £10 keeping the purchase cost and further cost well within my budget. The overall package is a well made high quality fly reel at a premium price that will fit almost everyone’s budget.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Reel! I bought this reel as i wanted to add a fast-sinking line to my six-weight collection. I already had a Clearwater IV Reel with spool for the floater and fast-intermediate lines, but rather than buy a complete extra Clearwater spool, i bought the Clearwater Cassette for similar money, thereby freeing-up extra reels/spools for my seven-weight collection - one can never have too many fly lines! This has also allowed me to compare the Clearwater Cassette with the Clearwater, and i have to say i'm impressed. The first thing i noticed when transferring the lines onto the cassette spools is their reduced capacity when compared to the original Clearwater reel (approximately half the amount of backing). This isn't an issue if you are spooling six or seven-weight lines, but if you choose eight or nine-weights, you would have to use an ultra-braid backing, rather than a more traditional fly-line braided backing as there would be very little room for more than a few yards of the thicker backing. One of the main benefits of the cassette spools is their reduced weight - handy for making baggage weight limits. They are very easy to change, fitting with a positive click to the outer, handle section, then fitting as a normal spool to the main, inner reel section. The outer handle and spool section fit with the standard Clearwater reels too, adding to their utility if you already own one. I fished with the reel yesterday on Eyebrook Reservoir in continuous, heavy rain and strong winds, changing the lines over several times during the day to follow the trout as they moved up and down in the water column. The reel performed faultlessly, with a lovely, smooth drag while playing rainbow trout in the 1.5 - 3lb range. The reel drag is very easy to adjust, even with wet fingers. There is slightly more side-to-side play in the reel when winding-in, compared to a bar-stock reel, but really not much and it did not detract from the performance at all. For anyone considering this reel, i can thoroughly recommend it. My boat partner had a few casts and was also impressed with both the looks and the performance. The reel bag is also well-made, padded and looks good. Overall, a veritable bargain!
