Reducing the reels weight eases shoulder strain. This increases arm reach for improved dead-drifts. The rod is also more sensitive to strikes with less mass at the butt end to counter movement at the rod tip. Your hook-sets will be quicker.

The Stinger is the ultimate
nymphing tool for most of the waters I guide. It’s lightweight, compact and deadly accurate. It also helps people learn how to apply proper pressure when fighting a fish.

The Mavrk USA’s Stinger has a definite place in my euro-nymphing. I’m a fly fishing guide in Colorado and when the trout are not looking up for dries euro-nymphing is my preferred fishing method. The Stinger manual reel is a great way to keep the weight of your system light so your arm is able to last longer. You can also carry two Stingers, one with a euro setup and one with a weight forward line to fish the hatch. Get one, or two and learn to use them.

My shoulder problem was getting worse from euro-nymphing with my heavy reel. The Stinger allows me to euro-nymph much better than before with longer and better dead-drifts. Lightweight is the way to go for the best euro-nymph and high stick techniques.
Great for backpacking.
“Well, my dad is a better angler than your dad so the Stinger must be good. It’s all he ever uses now. He also uses it when backpacking. 5 paws up!”
