Featuring awesome performance, superb quality and a beautiful, contemporary aesthetic, RX Spey reels represent the pinnacle of USA manufacturing and design, and redefine smooth and reliable.


Specifically crafted to balance two-handed rods and heavier saltwater rods, the RX Spey features a more traditional, solid black polished hardback frame. The large diameter spool assures quick line pickup and ample capacity to accommodate your line of choice, from Skagit to traditional long belly Spey lines. The RX4 Microspey is designed to accommodate smaller Spey lines for trout and other freshwater species.

Bauer fly reels are designed and handcrafted in the USA and come with a lifetime warranty.

Bauer revolutionized the fly reel world in 1995 with an award-winning design that combined superior large arbor performance with an innovative yet simple “zero-backlash” drag clutch. With a background in race cars and precision technology, Jon Bauer had a different perspective on how a fly reel should work. By applying principals of basic physics, he came to an obvious conclusion: the best design for a direct drive fly reel was one with a large arbor spool that minimized the variance of moment arm effect. The result was a reel with vastly improved line handling and retrieval, as well as superior drag performance. Over the years, Bauer has continued this tradition of design evolution, precision engineering and unmatched performance. Today, our reels are considered to be among the finest made and have earned a reputation among serious anglers and guides as the “Swiss watch of fly reels.”

What matters most in a fly reel is reliability.

You can’t put a price on that.

A reel must be smooth, seamless, and consistent – every time, in all conditions. The slightest hitch – or worse, a complete lockup – means the difference between landing the fish of a lifetime or losing it.

A Bauer reel is going to perform, period.
