What is the Greys Reel Case?
The Greys Reel Case is a protective case for storing fly reels and spools. It's made from a stiff cordura-like outer with padded internal compartments with dividers to stop reels knocking against each other in transit.
Why might I want a fly reel case?
While some fly reels come with a protective neoprene pouch to protect them against knocks and scratches, many don't. Instead, they're provided with a simple drawstring pouch which offers little protection, especially if dropped. The Greys Reel Case gives a bit of extra impact resistance and lets you store all the reels and spools you'll need for a trip in one pouch.
What size fly reels will it hold?
Oddly, the Greys Reel Case isn't that large so will only comfortably hold reels that are 5/6 size or smaller. Large arbour reels, especially those for 7, 8 or 9 weight lines probably won't fit inside, which somewhat limits its appeal.
How many reels will it hold?
There are four compartments which take four reels or spools up to about a #6 size. My Loop Multi Light reels fit inside without an issue, but bulkier reels are a bit of a squeeze. It's fairly well stitched together and works well. The zipper is good and there's a handle on the end to make carrying it a bit easier.
How much does it cost?
The Greys Reel Case costs around £8.95 which is pretty good value for money and much cheaper than buying individual cases.
