This reel hardly requires any further presentation. The Danielsson Original set a new standard for fly reels all over the world when it was introduced in 1983.
The Original reel permanently changed our view of fly reels and their function. The unique construction and design are a response to, in our opinion, the inferior reels that were previously on the market.

The model is still unrivalled with respect to low spool weight and the capacity to set a low start resistance without overspin.

The Original is probably the most coped reel in the world, which more than anything else is proof of a winning concept.

The Danielsson Original is characterised by:

  • Housing and spool made of high-tensile aluminium.
  • Components made of acid-proof steel.
  • Low spool weight counteracts overspin.
  • Low total weight and good balance.
  • Quick line retrieval.
  • Design that makes cleaning easy.
