Shilton SL Series Reels

This is the most popular of the Shilton salt water range. It has a track record of 20 years in the most remote and hostile environments. The reels have caught anything from bonefish, tigerfish, marlin and arapaima.
The robust design is crafted from solid 6082 T6 high grade bar stock aluminium. It features a custom-processed cork drag with enclosed one-way plungers. The reels ate Type II anodised for protection against the elements.
This is the reel of choice for many large guiding operations due to its simple, robust and “bulletproof” design.
The reel can be ordered with an incoming and outgoing click or silent outgoing with an incoming click.

If you want more backing capacity, you can order the SLL version, which is a bit wider.
