Tibor Standard Reels

The Tibor series of reels were first introduced in 1995 an have established themselves as the benchmark for custom-crafted fly reels. After years of development and input from the likes of Lefty Kreh and Flip Pallot, Ted was finally satisfied with a reel that truly has set a new standard in fly fishing reel technology.

The spool's large arbor design significantly enhances the rate of line retrieval which is critical when you're trying to control speedsters like bonefish, bonito, or wahoo. Tibor Reels are also a mainstay for Spey enthusiasts, delivering the ultimate balance, overall capacity and drag performance for the double handed rod.

As with all of Ted's reels, the drag system is absolutely flawless and has withstood the test of the world's most demanding game fish, including 234 World Records, so far. If you were to own only one fly reel, this is the one to have.

Tibor reels are made from solid aluminum bar stock and include an extra thick neoprene case for storage and transportation.


Custom Engraving Options available

Free engraving on name plate.

Lightweight to balance with modern fly rods and reduce casting fatigue.

Triple outgoing line signals, easily removable for silent operation.

Each reel is serialized for identification and protection.

Made and assembled in the U.S.A.
