Thread: Tioga Reels

  1. Default Tioga Reels

    Anyone interested in Tioga reels? Pretty tough to find these days. I have a 10 LA Magnum (few years old) and a Tioga 8 with a spare spool. Always loved them and took great care of them but thinking of going into something different.

    Hi MVFLY,

    If you are serious about selling them you should post them in the Market Place with a price. I think Tioga reels were the best bang for the buck for Steelhead reels.

    I have Tioga reels in three weights, 8, 10, and 12. I prefer the large arbor sppols, and the magnums are even better. I have used these reels for everything from Louisiana Reds and Speckled Trout, to NY Browns and Steelies, to Alaskan Sockeye, Kings, and Coho's. The drag performs as well as any reel I have ever owned (including Islander and Ross), and they are easy on the budget. The way I understand it the new reels are not compatible with the old? Please somebody enlighten me on that point.

    Hi Everyone,

    Here is what Teton USA has to say about servicing the older Reels.

    "While all Teton reels are designed to provide years of dependable service, sometimes an old reel could use a good tune-up.

    While the company that produced Teton Reels prior to 2009 is no longer in business, Teton USA is commited to supporting all reels that bear the Teton name. To that end, we are pleased to announce a service and repair partnership with W.J. Senecal Company for many of the reels manufactured by the old Teton Fly Reels, Inc. As an established manufacturer’s representative with years of service and support experience behind the previous line of Teton reels, they may have just the parts and expertise required to get your old reel running smoothly again. For information regarding parts and repair service on any of the discontinued Teton reels (including the Tioga, Trinity, Magnum and Specialist series reels) please open a service request ticket using the form below."


    So it seems that the older reels will have some level of service. I second the comment about their drags.

    Frank

    Old thread, I know...but if anyone still has one of these large arbor Tiogas in working order they want to part with, I would probably be interested; thanks.
