What differentiates existence from presence? Aura. The Temple Fork Outfitters Power reel crashes through the conveyor belt of highly machined fly reels currently on the market, offering anglers something different. This difference is not only visible and can be felt from the first time you use these Power Reels, but they are also backed by the presence that is TFO.
The TFO Power Reel is the latest addition to the Temple Fork Outfitters family of high-end machined reels. This design is different because it is fully anodized and dramatically ported to reduce weight, without sacrificing housing or spool strength which, we all know as anglers, is endlessly valuable. Unlike most drawbar reels that use coil springs for drag plate pressure, the Power reel utilizes a series of conical spring washers. Carbon fiber stainless steel brakes make a drag system that has a large range resistance with nearly exact “click” values. Even the drag knob is adjustable, allowing you to manage the minimum drag resistance.
The huge difference with the TKO Power Reel is the brake system. While most brands use coil springs, we’ve incorporated Bellevue washers, which look like cymbals, and two carbon fiber disc drags. Coil springs can cause a huge wrap up towards the end, and that’s why we’ve moved away from this process. The Bellevue washers give you an even, long, smooth turn from zero drag to max drag all in one turn. Best of all, this beautiful reel can be yours, today. Choose from Power I, Power II, or Power III to get the perfect TFO Power Reel for you, personally. With a clutch bearing for minimizing startup inertia and easy LH/RH conversion, the new TFO Power reel is a perfect match to our line-up of single and two-handed rods. This reel is ready, even when you’re not.
