MAKO FLY REELS
MAKO Fly Reels by Jack Charlton are beloved by many saltwater anglers and the standard by which all other fly reels are measured.
Jack Charlton entered the high-end fly reel market in 1993. The quality of design and workmanship in the original Charlton reels set new standards and over the years the various models have become collector’s items. At the end of November 07 a new series of saltwater reels called MAKO made their debut.
All reels continue the Jack Charlton design features of the legendary Signature Series reels; fully sealed with o-rings and proprietary carbon impregnated Teflon lip seals, oversized calibrated drag knobs with one turn stop to stop providing the full range of drag, multi-disk full contact carbon fibre drag system utilizing “button technology” to eliminate start-up friction, “taperloc” quick change spools and a 3 ball bearing spindle assembly. The new reels are produced to the highest machining standards and the polish and finish is second to none.
