It’s new class of ultra-light fly reels to enhance euro-nymphing and high-sticking techniques. The manual reel also works well with thin shooting line such as 2wt WF.
At 1.5 ounces it decreases shoulder fatigue, improves arm reach and dead-drift distance/control.
Low rotational inertia improves casting accuracy and increases rod sensitivity for quicker hook sets.
With the Stinger there’s no mechanical assistance and no mechanical failures- only the line and your own two hands between you and the fish, as it should be when catching wild river trout.
