Consistent with TFO's tradition of offering high-performance gear at an affordable price, the new Prism Cast Large Arbor Reels are made from cast aluminum with a cork disc drag and a one-way clutch bearing for instant drag engagement. They feature quick change spools and easy LH/RH conversion.

  • Spool & Frame Finish
    The Prism reels have a black powder coated finish, which is corrosion resistant but should be thoroughly rinsed in fresh water after exposure to saltwater to protect it. It can be immersed in warm soapy water and scrubbed with a soft brush to dissolve any salt buildup that may be in the reel. Anti-corrosive products such as spray polishes, oils, etc. are not required, but may preserve the long-term aesthetics of the reel.

    • High-quality grease, such as Cal's 2 Speed, should be applied to:
    • The roller bearing and hex retainer spring at the baseof the draw bar
    • The spindle where it contacts the bearings within the spool

    Drag Surface
    The Prism drag surface is protected from dirt and debris and should not need additional lubrication.

    Removing the Spool
    Remove the spool by sliding the small, silver lever located on the center of the spool face and then lifting the spool from the frame.

    Reversing the Retrieve
    Once the spool has been removed, locate the wire hex spring at the base of the draw bar. Using the flat side of a screwdriver, depress the side of the spring to remove it. Underneath, you will see the gray one-way roller bearing. Slide it up the draw bar, flip it over and put it back in place. If the reel is well lubricated, the bearing may want to stick in the grease. If this occurs, carefully work the roller bearing until it breaks free of the grease. Once the bearing has been replaced, put the hex spring back in place and reconnect the spool.
