The gold standard in fly reels.

Since it's introduction in 1995, Ted Juracsik's Tibor Reels has become a favorite of discerning fly fisherman. Innovations like a large arbor spool significantly increase the rate of line and retrieval and give fly fishermen a greater control of reel-smoking species like Bonefish, Permit, Wahoo and Tuna. The impregnated cork disc drag system delivers the strongest smoothes and most reliable performance in the water.


  • Large outer hub offers retrieve with low backing.
  • All internal parts are sealed from outside elements.
  • Open subbed, perforated spool and drum allow the reel to remain cool during scorching runs and outer holes act as a tippet keeper. 
  • Detented drag adjustment is smooth and positive.
  • Triple outgoing line signals, easily removable for silent operation.
  • Each reel is serialized for identification and protection.
  • Comes with an extra thick neoprene case for storage and transportation.
  • Each reel is serialized for identification and protection. The serial # is located UNDER the nameplate on top of the frame next to the reel stand.
  • Features a personalized Nameplate engraved free.
  • Made and assembled in the U.S.A.

Can’t beat it

Tibor is the king of fly reels. If you want to feel like royalty fish the whole line of tibor products. The take the abuse and keep working over and over again. This reel is perfect for big snook and tarpon. I’ve put them to the test on bull reds in Louisiana and they don’t skip a beat

Durability without compromising quality

Just a great reel.

Tyler Cooper
Super tough reel that can go through just about anything

I’ve fished my riptide for a couple years now and I haven’t had any trouble with it yet. The drag system has been great after being dunked in the water and put to the test against some giant tarpon. I definitely recommend the riptide to anyone that is consistently fishing for big sport fish.
