Shilton CR2 Black
The Shilton CR2 Black is the latest reel in the Shilton freshwater line up.
The CR series, which is available in three different sizes for line weights 3 to 8 has a super large arbor design that offers rapid, yet smooth line retrieval with less line memory.
The CR2 will comfortably hold 50 meters of 20lb Dacron backing with a W5I line. If you need more capacity we can spool with braid.
Although I use my CR2 with a WF5I line for trout I prefer this beauty for nymphing and a perfect match for my WF4F set-up.
My favorite feature on all Shilton reels is the smooth drags with near-zero start-up inertia. This has allowed me to fish with thinner and thinner tippets resulting in more bite, fewer break-offs, and more fish to show!
Shiltons have become world-renowned reels for all the right reasons and best of all they are made right here in South Africa!
