Like many anglers, I’m on a tight budget. Even though I can’t spend much on my gear, I do my best to rise to the challenge of having limited resources. In fact, I find it rather exhilarating to turn up a bargain that others have missed. To that end, I tirelessly scour the Internet for the best deals. It’s actually a point of pride for me when I discover a functional and affordable piece of fly fishing tackle. Here’s some information about one of my latest discoveries: the Airflo Enigma EnigmaEM3 reel.
About the Airflo Enigma EM3 Fly Reel
This is a high quality aluminium fishing reel that sells for only about £49.99. The Airflo Enigma EM3 represents one of the best value fly reels on the market. It has many superior design features, and is built to the standards and specifications of a reel costing much more. The EM3 has an impressive list of features, and the first thing you notice is its large arbour design. But then, the finish catches your attention…
About the Airflo EM3’s Durable Anodised Finish
The reel has a striking and highly durable anti-flashback anodised finish on the high grade aluminium casting, but the EM3’s good looking finish is just the beginning. Here’s why: Anodisation is an electrochemical process that hardens aluminium, making it 30% harder than steel. Anodised aluminium has an extremely long life span, and does not chip or peel. It is completely non-toxic and chemically stable. This material also is super-smooth, virtually non-porous, and resists staining and sticking. The result is that the EM3 is exceptionally resistant to abrasion and corrosion.
More About the Airflo Enigma EM3
The EM3 has a sealed drag system that lends both smooth performance and durability. It weighs 150 grams, and will hold about 100 yards of 4 to 6 pound test line. Because it’s a large arbour reel, it has all the attendant benefits, including better drag pressure control, consistent drag pressure, improved line handling and quick line retrieval. The sealed drag system is a noteworthy innovation of fly fishing reels. It’s well known that exposure to the elements quickly can compromise the integrity and Qué significa of a reel’s drag system. The result? The drag slips, and over time, other mechanical problems can develop. Fortunately, these problems have been solved, thanks to the development of the sealed drag, which ensures that a reel operates smoothly and delivers superior drag power.
