Our improved cartridge system reel is fully machined from aircraft grade aluminum. They're bulletproof, incredibly versatile, very practical, ultra-high performance reels!

The C3LA totally re-defines the concept of cartridge reels, adds a few practical ideas, makes some serious design, quality, and performance upgrades, and keeps the price very affordable. Gone are the pitfalls of lost fish due to weak graphite parts, plastic cartridges that might warp under pressure, and questionable drag systems that might fail in the heat of the battle.

The C3LA frames and snap-in spools are machined from solid aluminum. They're corrosion resistant, won't warp, and can be changed in seconds. The ultra-efficient large arbor spool design retrieves line quickly.

Our reel manufacturer, for this reel, is no longer in business.  We have been unable to find another supplier, and are closing out all remaining stock of these popular reels at more than 40% off.

I have used the Fly Shop's signature cassette reels since they were first introduced. I have 3 different sizes of them and they are flawless and trouble free. I only wish they were still available. Great product.
