The Origin II marks a whole new standard for us here at Reel Fly Fishing, by incorporating specific design and performance-orientated features into a fly reel.
The Origin II is our most technically advanced fly reel to date and designing the reel from start to finish in-house (Designed By Reel Fly Fishing Owner, Shaun Carstens) means we have an intricate knowledge of not just how the reel performs but how it will last!
The original Origin was an evolution of the brand and showed South Africans that performance and good aesthetics doesn’t need to be hidden behind a high price tag. Work began in 2020 on version II, knowing that following the original Origin would always be a hard task. However, we do believe we have stepped up to the challenge and created a worthy successor and a new benchmark for ourselves.
The Origin II delivers the latest in design tolerances, size, functionality and incorporates our most powerful fully waterproof drag system with 25lbs of drag pressure.
The slim side profile was a key functional design we chose as a thinner profile results in less bulk, more balance, and better handling. The thinner profile houses a deep V-shaped spool that can carry ample backing and aids in an exceptionally quick retrieve.
The Origin II is not so much an evolution but rather, a revolution!
