    Product Details
    On the exterior, the Brookie Series features distinct porting and a weatherproof finish. Aside from giving it a unique style, this precision machining process eliminates virtually all excess weight from the fly reel. Combine that with the superior dependability of 6061 bar stock aluminum, and you’ve got a reel that is as bulletproof as it is light. From the raw materials and the machining to the innovative tension system, every element of a Brookie fly reel is built to ensure a lifetime of use and performance that won’t be compromised by long days on the water.
     
    The difference lies in Galvan’s new Click-Ball System, a foolproof departure from traditional drag systems. Delivering completely customizable spool tension with minimal moving parts, the Brookie’s Click-Ball System strikes the perfect balance between simplicity and versatility. Achieving your desired level of resistance is as simple as a few turns of an allen wrench, leaving you to enjoy impeccable line retrieve without worrying about adjusting your drag or clearing out birds nests. That makes the Brookie ideal for palming, exceptionally smooth, and the perfect tool for trout anglers who value the subtle play that’s crucial to fishing with light tackle on technical water. No more failing drag systems and virtually no interference between you and the fish.

    We got our first look and feel today of the new Galvan Brookie and hats off to Galvan for answering to the need of a lighter reel for todays ultra light weight fly rods. Straight out of the box the reel is simple, smooth, light and quiet and preset to a nice operating drag resistance. However we are a bit mythed by the actual adjustment which leads us to identify a couple things you may want to know if you're considering owning one of these. The Drag, although adjustable requires removing the spool and using a supplied allen wrench. Also the drag tension applied is on incoming as well as outgoing so the same tension exist while reeling in. So if you like to have some control of your drag this may be an issue. If you're looking for that simple, minimal, and lightweight trout reel with just enough tension to stop over runs than you found it.
