IFTD 2019: Taylor Fly Fishing

Updated: Oct 31, 2021

Revelation (definition): 1. Revelation comes from the greek work apocalypse" (ἀποκάλυψις) meaning "an unveiling or unfolding of things not previously known and to uncover, disclose, or reveal. 2. an act of revealing to view or making known.

The Revelation was designed using the favorite aspects of our other popular reel models combining them into a performance product that reflects the spirit and soul of Taylor Reels! We combined the X style frame from the T1/TYPE1 with the porting and machining of the Enigma 2.0 to create a reel with a stunning look and feel. We took the powerful drag of the Revolution Z along with the proven ergonomics and dimensions of the Z to make a reel that 100% performance driven. The Revelation is designed for big salt-water, small mountain creeks and everything in-between.

The Revelation features a powerful carbon-fiber/stacked/sealed drag system that is silky smooth with 3.5 knob rotations of adjustments. The 3.5 rotations of adjustments allows you dial in the perfect amount of drag power according to your needs. This reel features two different drag chamber sizes; the 4-6wt features the smallest drag chamber, created to be strong yet light with 10lbs of maximum drag. The 7-9wt and 10-12wt feature a larger sized drag chamber with up to 15lbs of max drag. While the Revelation isn’t our most expensive reel, it has everything you could dream of in a perfect fishing machine!

These reels will start at $299 and be available for the 2019 holiday season. Taylor Fly Fishing is also adding some new fly rod sizes. Look for 9'0" 6 and 10 weights in the Truth rod series, and a new 8'6" 4 weight and two-handed 3, 6, and 8 weights in the Anomaly series.
