Tibor Signature Series 7-8 - Royal Blue
The brilliant Royal Blue Tibor Signature Series 7-8 Reels offer some exciting attributes new to Tibor reels. The most noteworthy difference in the Signature Series is the completely sealed drag system that houses a self-maintaining, lubricated cork drag that delivers the smooth, powerful drag performance Tibor reels are known for but in a waterproof, sealed design. Unlike most sealed drags systems, the Signature Series reels can also be unassembled without harming the reel and running into warranty issues just in case you ever needed to maintain the reel.
The Tibor Signature Reels with their sealed drag are something to consider for anglers using the reel for steelhead and salmon on Spey reels where the reel is constantly in wet environments and often submerged in water and around sand. The sealed drag keeps your drag pressure consistent and doesn’t change when wet vs. dry, which can be an annoyance with other, non-sealed drag systems.
Other features include QuickChange Spool design, easy conversion from left to right-hand retrieve, and free engraving of your name on the name plate.
