“If you are in the market for a new reel, then check out my HD Gear Review for The Grip series by Galvan Fly Reels” – Capt. Jesse Males
I have to admit that testing out The Grip fly reel by Galvan Fly Reels over the past few months has been a blast. The reels are smooth and slick, and the G-8 reel feels perfect on the base of my Walton Rods C-9.

Here is a recap of some on some of the details of The Grip.

Below are a few things I don’t have an issue with, but that may annoy some people.
- Not many color options (even though I think the Clear/Blue color looks pretty rad)
- While they are not heavy by any means, it is not the lightest reel on the market. The G-8 weighed in at 7.8 ounces and the G-10 weighed in at 8.7 ounces. For me, this would not be enough to deter me from this reel in the least bit.
Keep your hearts right, and your lines tight!
