Fair Chase G2 Click Pawl Fly Reel- Emerald Green on Emerald Green


Introducing…. The G2!  The Fair Chase G2, the latest in Cubalaya’s line of angler-focused, analog-centric Fair Chase Reels, leans on the successes of its predecessor while offering several experience-driven, battle-tested developments and upgrades.  We’ve shaved weight from the 4.5” spool, widened the line carrying area to 1.2”, re-engineered the spindle collar, reinforced the reel foot, and fully enclosed the frame so to keep fly and running lines firmly in place.  Saltwater or freshwater, two hand switch or spey, the lightweight (10.9oz) and ergonomically-friendly Fair Chase G2 offers unmatched versatility.  So much so, we’ve neglected to even assign a line designation to it; having fished the Fair Chase G2 from an 8wt on Bonefish and Redfish all the way up to a 12wt on Giant Trevally and Tarpon, we can definitively report, no task is too tall for the G2.  After all, the Fair Chase doesn’t catch fish, you do!

Our Product Promise:

Guaranteed for life—we will stand behind this reel for as long as you own it. As this reel utilizes a metal clicker in a metal gear, wear over time is inevitable. We ask that if any issues are to arise down the road, you send the reel back to us so that we can be certain it is repaired to our standards. We will happily cover the cost of repair as long as we can confirm that there was a malfunction, rather than blatant user error.  You can register your reel and learn more about our warranty at our Product Registration and Warranty page.
