Swift Fly Fishing Unveils LUNAR Hubless Fly Reel


From Swift Fly Fishing:

Hubless – Simple sophistication.

4 years in design and development, the remarkable LUNAR AC2 is the result of a design collaboration between bespoke reel maker Alex Kaplun and Swift founder Carl McNeil.

Fully CNC machined from cold forged tempered 6061-T6 aluminum, the unique LUNAR AC2 is a large arbor hubless fly reel suitable for freshwater.

The LUNAR AC2 features a new take on the click pawl drag, a large arbour spool with exposed rim for palming, a unique three pillar full cage frame which will not snag or jam fly lines and comes in a ballistic nylon presentation case and includes a neoprene field pouch.

The best drag in the business – You.

The LUNAR reel features a smooth asymmetric two tone click pawl mechanism and is easily swapped from left to right hand wind. The large exposed reel edge makes for easy palming – the ultimate & infinitely variable drag system that will never let you down. The LUNAR is not “waterproof” but does feature a sophisticated stainless steel 4-way thrust bearing that is certainly water resistant – i.e it’s OK to give your reel a dunking.

The quick change spool that actually is.

The “quick change” spool that actually is quick to change, simply pop the spool off the main hub and slide another spool on.

Not hungry.

The fly reel that does not eat fly lines. The LUNAR’s full frame construction makes for an extremely robust and stable fly reel. It’s much more difficult to execute, but fine machining tolerances and full cage design mean that there is nowhere on the LUNAR reel that will jam or catch fly lines. Full frame is also well suited to shooting heads and fly lines with thin running lines.
