Shilton SL8 Black

When the very first saltwater Shilton SL8 Black reels were introduced to the market, they were an instant success.

All major guiding operations and their guides, retail stores and the general fly fishing public began talking about a new reel. Designed and manufactured in South Africa!

Built to handle harsh saltwater environments and tackle busting fish. That was sixteen years ago, and the SL range is still rated among the best in the world!

This is a 14 wt reel, not for playing!!!

If it is big marlin, hard running tuna or the impossible monster dogtooth on the edge of the drop off, then this is the machine!

The SL8 comes with big cork drag washers that will stand up to everything the ocean can throw at it! Big capacity of more than 600m 50ln braided backing!
