Tibor Reels- Made in the US

Tedj1  

It's no secret that Tibor Reels have a well-earned reputation for quality and endurance.  In 2011, Tibor recieved first place honors from the IGFA for the most world records set on their reels- more than any other reel in history.  While most of us are familiar with the quality products that the Tibor Reel Company produces, what most people don't know is the man behind the reel.  His story is even more impressive than his award winning reels.

Tapered Slip Strike Indicators
The season is in full swing, boats, float tubes, and pontoon boats are getting word from the lakes-"Get out...Go Fishing!" These Slip Strike Indicators are made for those l-o-n-g leaders you need in lake fishing or deep rivers. No matter the length of the leader these slip indicators hold firm during casting and retrieving until the hook is set. The design of these indicators then release and slide down the leader letting you bring the fish to the net instead of 15 or 20 feet from it. What a concept!! The Slip Strike Indicators are tapered for less wind resistance. They are available in 3 sizes and 5 different colors to choose from. Also there are multi-colored packs available in all sizes.
TIS - Small 3/4" Tapered Slip Indicator TISC - 5 Color Combo pack Small 3/4"

TIM - Medium 7/8" Tapered Slip Indicator TIMC - 5 Color Combo pack Medium 7/8"

TILS - Large 1" Tapered Slip Indicator TILC - 5 Color Combo pack Large 1"

All three sizes available in the folowing colors

127 FL Chartreuse, 137 Fl Orange, 138 Fl Pink, 139 Fl Red and 142 Fl Yellow
