Mako is widely recognized as the fly fishing reel with the best drag system in the industry. The incredible drag system was designed using a sealed carbon fiber drag and not the typical cork system which, most competing reels currently use.

There are many colour combinations that you can have your reel made into


  • Mako reels are fully sealed with o-rings, and proprietary carbon impregnated Teflon lip seals.
  • Mako incorporate a multidisc full-contact carbon-fiber drag system that uses “button technology” to eliminate start-up friction.
  • Mako utilise oversized calibrated drag knobs with one turn stop, to stop providing the full range of drag.
  • Mako employ a “taper lock” quick-change spool and a three-ball bearing spindle assembly.
  • Mako reels are produced to the highest machining standards and level of polish
  • Type III anodizing which, gives them a near ceramic hardness to survive the elements.
  • All these qualities are amongst other features:
