IFTD 2016: Taylor Fly Reels Enigma ESD
Updated: Oct 21, 2021
Enigma ESD: Taylor Enigma ESD fly reels are both attractive and affordably-priced. These reels are built with an Exterior Sealed Drag (ESD) which means that both the clutch and bearings are externally sealed, yet the drag discs are left unsealed. Carbon fiber is the drag material of choice which provides the necessary fish-stopping power.
Machined from 6061-T6 bar stock aluminum, some of the other features include a one-way clicker, tool-free spool removal, right or left-handed retrieve, and large-arbor design.
Several awesome color combinations are available, as well as optional spare spools. Available line weight sizes include a #2–4 ($169.99), #4–6 ($174.99), and 6–8 ($179.99) to cover everything from trout fishing to light saltwater applications. All prices also include a neoprene reel pouch to protect your investment. If you are interested in one of these reels you're in luck, as they are available right now!
