Here is what Galvan has to say about their Torque reels:

Introduced in 2003, the Galvan Torque Large Arbor reel received great acclaim from industry professionals and consumers alike. Its combination of a unique design, function, and the Galvan high standards of quality have been embraced by fly fishers around the world.

What makes the Torque so special? Everything!

From the rounded spool and frame rims, to the contoured counter balance, to the uniquely designed cutouts on the spool, frame, and drag knob, to the innovative drag system, the Torque is clearly a step up in fly reel design.

Aside from striking good looks, the Torque is built for durability and function. Its large arbor, wide spool design ensures all the advantages inherent with large arbor reels. The ventilated drag knob is solidly detented for precise settings. Quite clicks both in and out add to the distinctive style. It is also easily changed from left to right hand retrieve.

The drag system for the Torque is composed of stainless steel, a self-lubricating bushing, and a state-of-the-art, heat- and wear-resistant thermoplastic material unlike anything else on the reel market.

Its unique design does not rely on ball bearings, but retains the smoothness of action that Galvan is known for: completely salt water safe, it will continue to perform flawlessly under the harshest conditions from the flats and the blue water to the mountain streams and the coastal rivers.

The Torque is available in nine sizes for three through sixteen weight rods. The highly ventilated spool and frame will balance nicely with the lightest of today's fly rods. The larger sizes will also serve well for use on Spey rods.
