TFO Power Fly Reel

Temple Fork Outfitters

TFR POWER I

The TFO Power fly reel crashes through the conveyer belt of highly-machined fly reels currently on the market, offering anglers something different, backed by the presence that is TFO. The latest addition to the TFO family of high-end machined reels is fully anodized and dramatically ported to reduce weight, without sacrificing housing or spool strength.

Unlike most drawbar reels that use coil springs for drag plate pressure, the Power reel utilizes a series of conical spring washers. Carbon fiber-stainless steel brakes make a drag system that has a large range resistance with nearly exact “click” values. Even the drag knob is adjustable allowing you to manage the minimum drag resistance.

With a clutch bearing for minimizing startup inertia and easy LH/RH conversion, the new TFO Power reel is a perfect match to our line-up of single and two-handed rods.

Spool & Frame Finish

Anodized aluminum reels are extremely corrosion-resistant but should be rinsed with fresh water after exposure to saltwater to help protect them. Warm water and a toothbrush can be used to dissolve any salt buildup, which may be in the reel. Anti-corrosive products such as spray polishes, oils, etc. are not required, but may preserve the long-term aesthetics of the reel.


Lubrication

High quality grease, such as Cal’s 2 Speed, should be periodically applied to:

  1. The threads on the draw bar
  2. All bearings
  3. The spindle where it contacts the bearings within the spool


Drag Surface

Carbon fiber drags do not require any lubricant, but a very thin coat of Cal’s 2 Speed is beneficial.


Removing the Spool

Tools Required: none.

Loosen the drag completely, then turn the spool cap assembly (center of the spool) counter clockwise until the spool is free.


Reversing the Retrieve

Follow procedure above for removing the spool. Slide the carbon fiber drag assembly off of the spindle (310 & 340 models require the removal of an e-clip), slide the one-way roller bearing out of the drag assembly and rotate 180 degrees (blue on top for right-hand retrieve). Re-assemble.
