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!

This reel has everything you could ask for. Comfort, castability, easy to setup and use right out of the box.
Works as advertised no messing around trying to get it set right. Kne quick adjustment and I was fishing.
First impressions on looks, very nice. Feels really comfortable in the hand, very light, feels robust, love the TEXAS logo, spinning the reel feels good and will get better once the ceramic bearings are worn in. Only reason for 4 stars and not 5 is because I haven't fished the reel yet. Can't wait to test out the casting ability and brake system. The buying experience with SIXGILL is trouble free and overall pleasant experience. Just wish the International shipping fees weren't so high.
What is a backlash lol, Iove this thing still haven't had a back lash its a no brainer
By far the best baitcasting reel l have used. The breaking system is outstanding.so far not 1backlash.
