Orvis Hydros SL IV Reel

Orvis Hydros SL IV Reel

Regular price $239.00 Sale Availbility: IN STOCK

Featuring a solid product spec, thoughtful design, and a keen attention to detail Orvis has produced a very nice product at an amazing price point. The Hydros SL Fly Reel scores on the three most important things we look for in a saltwater fly reel. First, a sealed drag prevents intrusion of water, salt, or sand. When these substances get on a drag surface the results range from seizure to free spool. Not good. Second, a low start up inertia allows you to use lighter tippets as you don't have to account for a high force required to get the spool to start turning. The lower the better and the Hydros SL has negligible start up, the lowest of any reels in its price range. Lastly, a powerful drag for when you need it. Albies and bonefish will challenge a drag system and the 14 pounds put out by the Hydros SL drag stack is the best in its class. There are other benefits to the the Hydos SL such as the large arbor spool. This increases the rate of retrieve, something you'll notice when an albie turns and burns back toward the boat. The Hydros SL is a reel that will perform above your expectations for reels costing a good deal more. Nice job Orvis!

Shipping Costs

Shipping costs are determined by the size and dimensions of your order as well as your location. Just need something small? Maybe a lure or two? Your shipping charge could be VERY low - even under $3 for a single plug or other small item. You'll have options from least expensive to the very fastest for when your order just can't wait. Keep in mind many around New England, New York, and New Jersey will receive orders within 2 days even with our least expensive shipping.

Rod Shipping Charges

Most rods due to their size and packaging requirements will incur an additional "Oversize Shipping" charge of $9.99 to cover the expense of the rugged shipping tube needed to safely get your new fishing rod to you. Free shipping still applies. Some rods do not require the Oversize Shipping surcharge.

How soon will my order ship?

We know you can't wait to get out on the water. Almost any order placed before 3pm (and often as late as 4 or 5pm) will ship same day.

Free USPS Shipping offered on most orders over $100 within the United States
