The Arrival Series is a triumph of American fishing industry manufacture and the culmination of our most ambitious project to date! Bringing manufacture of a low-profile casting reel back to the U.S. has been a goal and a constant under-the-radar project for us since we formed the company. This reel is a balance from both Texas and wider US manufacturing and components from our global suppliers, all coming together with assembly and quality control at our Southlake, Texas facility. The combination of our proven, patent-pending magnetic braking system with micro gearing and ceramic bearings means the reel is equally and impressively smooth on both the cast and the retrieve. Add to that our durable oversized aluminum cranking handle, the featherweight provided by a unique thermoplastic material coated in a durable ceramic finish, and you’ve got a serious contender even before you consider that it’s coming straight out of Texas!

    Arrival 7.0:1 Right hand

    Published by James Bills on 18th Aug 2022

    First let me say I have small hands (size7 ring finger.) iThe Arrival is by far my favorite reel it fits my hand very well and wish I had ordered more than one. The only Sixgill casting reel I haven’t owned was the Deluge. They have outdone themselves with this one. Cast/Retrieve is super smooth and the cerakote, finish looks super sharp and feels great. I was a bit apprehensive about the Texas image etched in the thumb/button but its not an issue. I pared mine with a medium heavy Siren Rod and the set up weighs next to nothing. I took my nephew who is 15yrs old and only has limited experience using a baitcasting reel out fishing and I never got to use this set up. He wouldn’t put it down. He was able to throw weightless wacky worms and Texas rigs all day with pretty decent accuracy and without backlashing ,wind was not an issue. I will be purchasing more.

    This is the best baitcasting reel. It is super smooth, casts a mile and still have yet to get a backlash no matter how much I try. Cant wait for my military rod so I have another. So happy I ordered one and it was worth the wait!!!!

    Solid out of the box.

    Published by Jeff on 18th Aug 2022

    Out of the box they are solid and needing very little adjustments to cast a country mile. I am very happy with them.

    Just AWESOME

    Published by Charles on 18th Aug 2022

    I have 2 Hamarr reels and love them and 7 didn't think Sixgill would be able to top them but boy they did . Smooth as butter and will cast a mile. Well worth the wait on the pre-order . My only regret is I only ordered 2 of them . I will be getting more one day . You won't be disappointed.....

    Texas (Arrival) reel

    Published by Steve on 18th Aug 2022

    Absolutely the best reel in my boat and I have Wrath, Nimbus and Hamarrs along with some other brands. The first cast from this reel was amazingly long and smooth. Think Wrath on steroids. Only regret I have is I should of preordered 10 more.

    Great reel

    Published by Greg King9 on 18th Aug 2022

    I have fished many reels in my 56 years and this is hands down the best. Amazing casting distance with incredible control. The braking system is like no other. Just wing it over and over again with no backlashes. Truly ground breaking reel!

    Arrival reel

    Published by Ronnie Nance on 18th Aug 2022

    This is by far the best baitcasting reel I have ever used. Casts a mile with the lightest of weights. Justin really knocked it out of the park with this one and it's made in the U.S.A.

    Arrival 8.01 RH Reel

    Published by Robby Batesel on 18th Aug 2022

    I am 85% kayak fisherman. I have been trying to find the right reel for ease of use casting from a sitting position and the Arrival is it! The combination of the ceramic bearings and the magnetic braking make it so smooth and worry free. The cast distance is second to none, and the finish on the reel is very durable. But what really put it on top for me is how it feels in my hand while my hand is wet. If you fish in a kayak at all you know how wet your hands stay when you are catching fish. The finish on this reel keeps it from slipping when your hands are wet, and it also doesn't hot and burn you in the sun! 10 of 10 would I reccomend

    Arrival reel

    Published by Sean on 18th Aug 2022

    The reel is awesome the bearings are a little bit noisy but they are ceramic ball bearings. It casts just as far as my hamarrs.

    Great reel.

    Published by Chris Moloney on 18th Aug 2022

    I received my reel a month ago. So far I've used it for worms, chatterbaits and lipless crank baits. All of which it performed flawlessly. With almost no tweaking, I was able to cast a country mile. Biggest fish so far on it was about 3 lbs. Handled it perfectly. The only regret with it was not pre ordering more.
