BiMetal Reel


The Paradigm features the powerful, exclusive Godfrey Custom drum drag system with positive 10-position, and lever adjustment that was first introduced in 1986.

The basic design has 20 years field testing around the world: Alaskan silvers, Catskill secretive browns, and Icelandic sea run trout - anywhere fine-tippet finesse angling or sheer power is needed.

Featuring classic nickel silver fittings, smooth adjustable drag, and massive bearings, the Godfrey Custom Paradigm Reels are the finest trout reels available for the serious angler.

Paradigm Reel

Sumptuous Elegance: The Paradigm walnut burled wood reels are the culmination of nearly 20 years working with wood side plate reels. They are a unique design that really shows off the wood grain against the nickel silver reel frame bands.

I only make a few of these reels now and again and are deferred to a day when I can devote the necessary time. Impregnated burled walnut sides with matching Dymondwood handle knob, Additional $500.00.
