DetailsThe Greys GTS500 Fly Reel is the replacement for the popular GX500 Cartridge Reel. The GTS500 is manufactured from Black, Die-cast Aluminium and is far superior in design and consistent in build quality to its predecessor.
The GTS500 is the most affordable of the two options in the Greys GTS Cartridge Reel range. We think the rulon disc drag system is more than adequate for the situations these reels will commonly face. With a single turn of the drag knob you have the softest to the hardest of drag. The large arbour design increases line retrieve speeds and provides superior capacity for more than enough backing. The clear polycarbonate cassette spools aid with line identification and make the reel very attractive. Three spools are included in the package but extra spools are available individually for you to use this superb reel with all of your lines.
The two sizes of 5/6/7 and 7/8/9 have presented an option for the angler to balance their #7 rod with the smaller or larger versions of the reels. This is a feature we have appreciated within our store when suggesting suitable matches to customer's existing or new rods and lines. The quick “tool-less” change of winding direction is ideal and changing spools whilst on the water is as effortless as we think it could possibly be.

- The reel is great for the cost. With the fast change spool is really convenient to canghe fly line, and the fly line fitting service is incredible! Thank you Angling Active. Review by Davide (Created 10/12/2019)
- I've owned a few Grey's reels and this one is brilliant . I have the 7,8,9 size and it holds a pike weight forward 10 and 100 mts of 30ibs gel spun backing . The drag is great , it's light , changing spools is a doddle as is changing from left to right hand wind . The spools are cheap and coming as standard with 3 spools means you can start off with your 3 favourite lines and add for little cost . A brilliant no brainer buy.

- Whilst a cheaper cousin of the GTS700 this reel really is a quality item. Made from cast aluminium it has a very robust yet light feel to it. It looks great in its satin finish is very smooth and has a very quick retrieve rate. Works on a cassette system so idea, for quick line changes and the larger diameter spool helps with anti kinking and line lay. Comes with very smart case and spare cassetes too. Great price from AA too. Review by Kilsh (Created 23/10/2018)

- Very nice reel. Comes with 2 spares spools so very convenient if you need different types of line. Plus, the design is great. Review by Thomas (Created 19/03/2018)
- Always bought Greys reels - never let you down. Another good reel at a fair price Review by Palmer (Created 27/06/2016)
I bought a GTS500 last year and love it so much I bought another yesterday.
I often take two rods with me to fisheries so I can have different set ups instantly. Having two GTS500 reels lets me do this while still using my favourite reel.
It comes in a case with two spare cassettes.
The build quality and design are excellent.
I'm amazed and delighted that such a great reel is so inexpensive.
An absolute steal ! Review by Crawford (Created 26/05/2016)
