Torque

SKU: torque Category:

As the premier reel in the Galvan range, the Torque Series reels represent the culmination of a lifetime of fly-fishing and passion for reel design. Simply stated, it represents the very best of modern fly reel architecture. The Torque reel series was created because Boni wanted to create a revolutionary reel with a more substantial drag system than was presently available on the market. And it had to be sexy. Thus the Torque series reels were born.The unique Torque reel, the fourth series created by Boni, was the first reel released with our Torque drag system, which is now employed in all of our reels. Its inception was in late 2002 with prototypes coming to life in 2003. After being tested, retested and modified, it was finally released to the public in 2004. It immediately won the 2004 Editors Choice in Fly Fish America and was ranked #3 in the recent Yellowstone Anglers 8-wt reel shootout, beating a host of other reels in function and price (link). Its original style and unique porting has solidified Galvans reputation as a leading innovator in the industry.The visually striking appearance of the Torque reels is a result of the unique cut-outs on the frame, spool, drag knob and reel foot. This design is not only aesthetic but also structural as it significantly reduces the weight of the reel while maintaining strength and increasing rigidity .The rounded rims on both spool and frame enhance durability to better withstand impact during extreme angling conditions.At first glance, the hand is drawn to the reel and from the first crank of the contoured counter balanced spool, the reels quality is apparent. It is a combination of efficiency and simplicity driven by function. In this case, less is more and cost is no exception as Torque reels retail at half the price of reels in its class.Torque Series reels are saltwater safe and will perform flawlessly under the harshest conditions. From remote alpine lakes to the saltwater flats, the highly ventilated spool and frame balance nicely with the lightest of todays fly rods yet still compliment a modern big-game saltwater fly rod. The Torque is tough as nails and skillfully marries the technology of the future with the tradition of the past.

This fly shop is superbly stocked and everything a fly shop should be. Super helpful staff, and excellent fly selections. They had me dialled in when I left the store, and I had a great day on the water.

We had a great guide in Tom during our half day beginner's class. He spent time with each of us making sure we knew what we were doing tying knots and determining which fly and and fishing method was best. The only reason it wasn't 5 stars is because we only had 30 minutes left after the class to actually fish. I wish we had more time for that.

I love this shop! Everyone there is so nice and knowledgeable. They have some awesome women's options for all your fishing needs. I got my Patagonia waders here and I love them!!! Their hat selection is huge...same goes for fishing bags, shirts and sweaters. If you stop by Dave will let you know what flies are working and he will even pull up a map and show you where to go! Stop by here, you will not be disappointed.

Great Fly Shop in a beautiful location. They have the gear, the guides and the local knowledge to hook you up with great fishing. I caught 10 fish , on the Eagle River thanks to their tips on techniques and fly selections. Can't complain about that !

Good information on fishing around the whole state. The guides that run the shop in Lone Tree as well as up in Minturn, all fish the water and will give you good advice on what flies to through. The are also some of the best guides in the business. Great team.

We always use Minturn Anglers and Duane Redford every year for my nephew and I. We could not enjoy this relationship and experience with fly fishing anymore. In 6 years we have only had one bad day and that with that the weather wasn't cooperating-'thunder & lightning'. Sam Hawkes and Josie Williams

I have been fishing with Minturn Anglers for the past 6 years. The guides have helped me create a love of fly fishing for my son (14) over the past 6 years. No trip has been the same, each guide has been a genuinely great person with a passion for the outdoors. We have always had a great experience with Minturn - from catching many small brookies on a high mountain stream to large browns and rainbows on an icy Eagle River during the winter.

Had an absolutely great time on the Eagle River with our guide, Tom! He was very knowledgeable and encouraging. He even went a little over our four hour session just to see us pull in one last fish! Would highly recommend this shop for guided fly fishing; scheduling was easy and the session itself was fantastic!

Best in the Vail area for a reason! Enthusiastic, knowledgeable guides with a friendly shop staff and access to some of the best water in Colorado. The Front Range folks know their stuff among more pressured waters. Great company!

I had several house guests with me and took them all fishing with Minturn Anglers. Everyone caught fish and the guides were extremely helpful. We had a great trip and my house guests have asked if they could schedule another trip upon their return. The guides were well prepared and knew the river. A wonderful experience!
David S.
Great outing with Dave. They had all the equipment available and Dave provided meaningful and insightful tips and instructions. We all had a super time and would recommend Minturn Anglers without reservation.
