Shilton SL6 Reel

By Shilton

The SL6 is the reel of choice for many large guiding operations to place on their loan rods due to its “bulletproof” design. This reel has a track record of 20 years in the most remote and hostile environments targeting powerful adversaries like salmon, steelhead, tigerfish, golden dorado, bonefish and permit. The robust design is crafted from solid 6082 T6 high grade bar stock aluminium and features a custom-processed cork drag with enclosed one-way plungers. The SL6 accommodates 9 to 10 weight lines and is available in custom chosen CCH colorways.
