I’ve been very happy with my RX reels. They feel solid but lightweight, the drag is smooth and consistent. They are my first Bauer reels but they will not be my last.
I have yet to fish it. Backing and lining it up soon to be bent. I’m sure it will fish just splendidly!
I own 4 Bauer reels and this reel is awesome. Hands down a far better reel than the Ross San Miguel
I’ve had Bauer reels for almost 20 years - actually more I think. I love this brand. Thank you so much. Brian
I’ve spent over a decade guiding and working in fly shops. During those years, I’ve spent time with nearly every fly reel brand made. The reason I choose Bauer is simple. Flawless performance, bulletproof drag system, and unwavering commitment to quality and durability. From technical tailwater sight fishing in the Rockies with the RX2 I can’t imagine using any other reel when it comes to landing the trophy trout we all work so hard to pursue!
The reason I choose the Bauer RX5 is simple. Flawless performance, bulletproof drag system, and unwavering commitment to quality and durability. From toothy pike “Up North” or countless species in the salt the RX5 has excelled in every test I’ve put them through.
