CL Series – Standard Arbor Freshwater
The CL series is a Shilton classic. It was the first in this range to be designed and introduced to the market in 2002. The CL range is fashioned in a standard arbor design with a narrower, classic spool width. It is available from CL1 to CL6 and accommodates line weights from 3 to 10. This series is especially popular in the smaller sizes for longer 3 and 4 weight rods in the 8’6” and 9’0” range. The CL5 and CL6 are still a very popular reel for Salmon Switch and smaller Spey rods. A larger backing capacity, compared to the CK and CR reels, also makes the CL a popular reel for fish that potentially take you into your backing. The reel retrieval, both incoming and outgoing, is silent. This reel is currently available in black and titanium.
