Proving that cutting edge design doesn’t have to be complicated, the ultra-lightweight Brookie Series from Galvan is an entirely new kind of fly reel. With a revolutionary approach to line tension and a commitment to lasting performance, the Brookie is a modern reel built on old principles: quality craftsmanship and simple, dependable componentry.
The difference lies in Galvan’s new Click-Ball Tension System, a foolproof departure from traditional click pawl reels. Delivering customizable spool tension with minimal moving parts, the Brookie’s Click-Ball System strikes the perfect balance between simplicity and versatility. Achieving your desired level of resistance is as simple as a few turns of an allen wrench, leaving you to enjoy impeccable line retrieve without worrying about adjusting your drag. That makes the exceptionally smooth Brookie ideal for palming and the perfect tool for trout anglers who value the subtle play that’s crucial to fishing with light tackle on technical water. The Click-Ball System simplifies the concept of drag so there is virtually no interference between you and the fish.
On the exterior, the Brookie features distinct porting and a weatherproof finish. Aside from giving it a unique style, this precision machining process eliminates virtually all excess weight from the fly reel making it one of the lightest fully machined American-made reels available. This reduced weight combined with the superior dependability of 6061 bar stock aluminum, provides a reel that is as bulletproof as it is light.
More traditional anglers will appreciate its straightforward design and sure reliability, new-school anglers will love the look and feel, and both will appreciate the seamless line retrieve. Regardless of what draws you to the reel, Galvan’s Brookie Series is certain to change the future of the lightweight fly reel.
