The Orvis Hydros Large Arbor reel offers you the perfect combination of large arbor performance in a lightweight fly reel design. Plus, the most dependability in a large arbor reel, all while giving you maximum backing capacity and quicker line pick up for big fish; the BLA III, for instance retrieves 3 times faster than the BBS III and 1½ times faster than the Access Mid Arbor III.
Smooth and reliable carbon and stainless center disc drag with a one-way rollerbearing handles those big trout.
Numbered, indexed drag knob with positive clicks for each setting means repeatable adjustments on the fly.
Each fly reel machined from durable yet lightweight 6061 bar-stock aluminum with a hard anodized aluminum bushing for ultralight weight.
The perfect reel for your Helios rod.

The reel works beautifully and looks very sharp. I have the IV for my 7wt and have bought an extra spool to also out it on my 8wt for salt.
