Superior Construction

irt_reel_whyusInterchangeable aluminum parts: Specific to IRT, high quality aluminum machined fishing reel replacement parts are available to our customers long after the initial purchase at a reasonable rate. Five standard IRT colors and virtually unlimited color combinations allow the purchaser to create specific custom color reel combinations.

Comfort: The Spin Power Grip™’s revolutionary shape removes the pressure between the fingers caused by traditional spinning reel designs, allowing them to rest comfortably above the reel handle.

Leverage: IRT’s reel combined with the rod of your choice creates a lower center of gravity providing the fisherman with an increased mechanical advantage. IRT is committed to providing every advantage possible to angler when fighting trophy fish.

Distance: The lengthened lever arm of IRT’s aluminum machined fishing reels provides improved casting performance; this allows for lighter lines and lures.

Line retention: Auto Trip provides a quick, smooth line retrieval, creating an advantageous edge against immediate strikes while also allowing for the quick adjustments required to place a cast with extreme precision. IRT Reels are also available with Strike Saver.

Reversible handle: A reversible handle allows for versatility between fellow outdoorsmen or various fishing needs. This unique design gives the fisherman an advantage over the ordinary right and left handed reels that are traditionally offered within the aluminum machined fishing reel industry.

Level line wrap: IRT’s aluminum machined spools rotate and adjust with precision to create a symmetrical line wrap, improving casting, drag, and line performance.
