Galvan Open Back reels incorporate all of the outstanding features of the standard Galvan reel. Available in the OB-1 (Open Back 1), OB-2, OB-3, OB-4, OB-5. This reel series has an incredibly smooth action and drag not seen on most fly reels. The extra machining on the frame and spool reduces weight and enables you to look through the middle of the reel. The Open Back's spool and frame are fully machined out of 6061 bar stock aluminum. It has a quick-release spool that requires no tools to remove it from the frame and is counter-balanced for a smooth wobble-free rotation.
The Galvan Standard & Open Back Drag System
The Drag system is made from stainless steel and Ertalyte (a state-of-the-art, heat and wear-resistant thermoplastic unlike anything else used in the reel market.) The Ertalyte disc is used as a brake mechanism. It is sandwiched between a finished stainless steel surface and creates a super smooth drag pressure with consistant start up pressure. The spool is riding on a post with two stainless ball-bearings and gives this fly reel a smoothness unseen on other reels. The spool has two pins that securely attach it to the super smooth drag system. Galvan reels have a silent (clutch) that will spin freely on retreive and will smoothly engage the unique drag system when reversed.
