    Default G Loomis Venture 5 reels

    Hi gang! I am looking for spare spools for my Venture 5 reel. Anyone know where to find them. I like the quiet clicker on this reel. What other reels are quiet or have no click at all both directions line stripping out or line reeling in? Anyone know what the G Loomis story is? I guess they are done making fly reels for now?

    I believe that reel is/was made by Shimano. Perhaps they can help.

    Shimano facsimile is "Ultegra," just like the road cycling series.

    OP, if no spare spools surface, you might keep an eye out for Galvan Standard reels on the previously enjoyed market. Very subtle click outgoing, silent incoming (or vice versa,... mine's not handy). The click is next to nonexistent, really. I believe the Galvan OB series is the same but in mid-arbor configuration.
