The AIRFLO Switch Black fly reel is a "Large Arbor" injected aluminum reel. Featuring a brake that is both soft and powerful, comes in a carrying case with four spare coils, it’s a cheap reel at all. It even has an excellent price/quality ratio. It advantageously replaces the old AIRFLO Switch Cassette reel, with a much better brake.
This reel is delivered in a bag designed especially for him. This bag has a practical handle for its transport. The bag is compartmentalized to accommodate in addition to the reel, 4 spare coils (cassettes). These 4 spare coils make this reel very economical for those more and more numerous that have several bristles, for example two floating different profile, an intermediary, and two divers of different speed in order to adapt to the fishing conditions. The inside of each reel is profiled in V to facilitate its filling, which will be appreciated by fishermen who do not guide the line when they rewind. The replacement reels are also suitable for the AIRFLO Switch Pro reel, and are interchangeable with the reels of the old AIRFLO Switch Cassette and Switch Superlite reels.

Which model to choose?
A fly reel is chosen according to the number of the silk that will be put on, without forgetting at least 40 meters of backing in 20 lb for trout, 90 meters for sea trout and summer salmon. If the capacity of the reel is limited, it is possible to use a finer backing with equal resistance like the AIRFLO Gel Spun.
The AIRFLO Switch Black 4/6 reel is perfect for fishing dry trout in river or tank, with a WF5 silk or lighter than the backing. Depending on the line models, a WF6 may lack space on this model, in which case it is better to choose the upper reel size.
The AIRFLO Switch Black 7/9 is ideal for tank fishing. It has indeed the right size to fish with a silk up to WF8 plus backing. And its spare reels make this reel very cheap for those more and more numerous that have several bristles to adapt to the fishing conditions.
Available in two sizes, each reel comes with 4 additional clear spare spools and a custom fit reel bag.
