I did not believe it, when a flyfishing friend of mine talked about a $10,000 saltwater flyreel, made of titanium. But it does exist :roll:

Check this out

It is said to be made in Ukraine by Hardys of U.K .
Takes six days to machine a single reel.

Infact if i am have not mistaken i have seen this reel with one of my acquaintance who came from Colorado for a fishing trip to India with 4 of his clients as a guide in march this year. Fished north India for 15 days, In Himachal and Uttranchal.

They were using this with a wt 7 rod.

Its as light as air and is an eye catcher!!!

Cheers !!!

Using aerospace materials for their structural strength is catching on in a lot of areas - including sport fishing. The reason the reel is so expensive is that they probably need to machine that sucker out of a single Ti monoblock.
