The Tibor series of reels were first introduced in 1995 and have established themselves as the benchmark for custom-crafted fly reels. After years of development and input from the likes of Lefty Kreh and Flip Pallot, Ted was finally satisfied with a reel that truly has set a new standard in fly fishing reel technology.
At FKO, we have used the Riptide as a 9-10 weight go to reel for years. Sandy has caught countless permit, bonefish, and tarpon on the Riptide, with never a blink. With a tank like design, the Riptide has been a staple in the Islamorada Guide community as well.
