All About Anodized Fly Reels

Posted on February 21 2011

Should you care whether your fly reel is anodized? And if so, what does anodization really do? Phil Monahan explores the art and marketing of durable reel finishes in MidCurrent‘s Ask the Experts.
Excerpt: “Anodizing is a chemical process that creates a coating on the surface of a metal (usually aluminum), which makes the metal more durable and resistant to scratches and dings. Anodizing also increases corrosion resistance and makes the metal easier to dye. Reel manufacturers use aluminum because it is so light, but it’s also quite soft. Without anodizing, an aluminum reel would not be very durable.”
