If you don’t already know, the arbor on a fly reel is the small cylindrical center of the reel which the line is wound around. In general, traditional fly reels have a much smaller arbor than most of the reels you’ll find today. While most anglers today do prefer a large arbor reel, standard arbors can sometimes offer the benefit of a lighter overall setup. This may be useful if you’re dealing with a heavy fly rod, though the weight difference may not be significant. Another potential benefit of the standard arbor fly reel is its cost-efficiency. It isn’t hard to find an inexpensive standard arbor reel, especially here on ReelTrail!
