The Series-1 reel carries on the T1 and original TYPE1 history into the next generation of Taylor products. It’s everything you’ve ever wanted in a fish-fighting tool! It has a beautiful two-tone anodized frame, excellent machining, and an extra-large arbour on the outside. Anglers fishing tough terrain will fully appreciate its flawless 2.5 turn adjustment where the carbon fibre drag system becomes completely sealed.

The feather weight of the 4-6wt is 4.8 ounces. The Series-1 is one of the lightest 100 percent sealed drag reels on the market today, making it ideal for modern high-modulus, lightweight carbon rods. At this pricing, the Series-1 is a must-have.

The Series-1 is available in weights ranging from 4 to 9 pounds and is suitable for use in both fresh and saltwater. At this pricing point, we are confident that no other reel comes close to the quality and design of the Series-1.
