BiMetal Reel

The Paladin Reel is lavishly hand crafted with impeccable detail and great fishing power for the serious angler. This is a geared - fast retrieve, seven weight reel for the pursuit of large bass, silver salmon, and summer steelies. It is the largest size Godfrey reel that incorporates the Paradigm Super Drag System remains strong and smooth throughout the range of drag strength.

The Paladin is available on a limited bases due to the considerable amount of time-consuming hand crafting involved! Either polished black hard coat aluminum or hand polished bright aluminum or nickel silver sides are available.

Added elegance is seen in detailing throughout. The pillars feature nice step collars and the rims are cleanly carved like wedding bands. The face plate is all had carved and polished to perfection, the polished back plate features special knurling on all fittings. This reel never loses value despite heavy use or abuse because bands can be replaced if really crunched, and nicks anywhere can always be polished up - just like new!
