Edco Improves Solitude Fly Reel by John Nagy


The newly improved Solitude Fly Reel by Edco
<
Edco has recently made some improvements to its Solitude fly reel that it feels will enhance the quality of the reel considerably
> The moderately priced but precision made fly reel has a large following and has been called the “guides” reel for its dependability and performance >
Edco has changed the cork material (that was previously used in both the original “Harris” Solitude and the redesigned Edco Solitude fly reel) to a much stronger, longer lasting cork material that is specifically designed as a friction material.
>
The capacity for this cork to withstand heat build up far exceeds the limits of the former cork used. This new cork does not compress under stress which allows for the drag to remain constant even during heavy compression and subsequent release of drag pressure. The net effect of this cork is a drag system that will far out last the previous system and perform more consistently during its life.
> Edco has also changed the stainless material used in the reel from 416 stainless to 17-4 stainless (which is a highly corrosive resistant material). Based on both field and in-house testing (using a specialized saltwater chamber) the reel has performed admirably in both salt and freshwater.

Edco’s Solitude reel comes in 4 sizes (from trout to salwater) and 3 finishes (including pewter, gold and black). It is available in both a standard and large arbor spool design. (The large arbor Solitude V is what John Nagy uses on his Noodle Fly Rod).
