The Greys GTS700 Fly Reel is a highly impressive reel that is part of the GTS series from Greys. The GTS700 is the replacement for the popular GX700 Cartridge Reel.
We think that the GTS700 reel is superior in comparison to it's younger brother, the GTS500, in it's design and construction. The GTS500 is certainly impressive for the price but the GTS700 boasts quality, durability and is certainly far more advanced in it's build.
The main difference between the reels is that the GTS700 has a strong and long lasting aluminium bar stock 6061 frame construction and features a die-cast spool carrier. When we handled the reel, we could feel the combination of these two materials working together. The reel feels surprisingly light in weight but you can easily feel that it is sturdy and long lasting.
The GTS700 features certainly impressed us. The large arbour design increases line retrieve speeds that provides superior capacity for more than enough backing and the Dual Rulon drag system gave us much smoother line control.
Another point we love about the reel is the clear polycarbonate cassette spools. With the GTS700, you receive three in the package and they all feature a line ID system. This very attractive feature helps you identify the type of line you are using with the supplied pins and makes the process of identifying your line when you’re fishing incredibly easy.
Additionally, this reel makes changing to left or right hand wind effortless due to the “tool-less” feature and changing spools is a quick and easy process as well.
With it's powerful, high quality and performance combined with easy use and smooth control, we think the Greys GTS700 reel is a very attractive purchase.
The two sizes of the Greys GTS700 is 5/6/7 and 7/8/9 and these sizes present 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 GTS700 is an ideal and reliable choice of reel for when you are fly fishing for Trout and Salmon.
The Greys GTS700 fly reel is available in sizes 5/6/7 and 7/8/9 and is supplied in it's own reel case with 2 additional spools. We recommend you purchase the correct reel size for your fly rod and fly line.
