Product Description

All New V6 Design!

PLEASE READ and agree to the following CONDITIONS:


CONDITIONS

The 3D Fly Reel STL and STEP files are copyrighted and protected work. Although I provide the STL files for free and accept donations for the STEP files, there are a few conditions you must agree to:

  1. Please register using your actual information - at least your first name and state/country and email address. I will not spam you but I do like to know where my design is going. Another reason to register is that I publish updates and provide pre-releases of new designs to registered users - like the new Ultralight and Large Arbor Reels I'm working on now. Note: it's ok to fill in a fictitious street address if you choose. I really only need your email address and first name. My store software does not allow me to make these fields optional.
  2. You may not post or give the files or derivative of the files away to others. If someone asks you for them, just send them to this page please.
  3. You may not sell reels you create with this design, derivative of this design, or files. Note, I do give permission to folks who want to print reels to donate to charitable or conservation organization fund raisers, simply ask!
  4. You may post as many photos of your printed reels as you'd like, I love to see what people have done!

I like to print the reel in PLA. I have also printed them in ABS. Nylon and PETG work also. The design and clearances were optimized for PLA and ABS, other filaments may be different.

These files are standard STL files that can be opened in your slicer application. I like to use KISSlicer but most any slicer will work.

The reel weighs in at 45 gms / 1.6 ounces. It is 3" in diameter and designed to hold up to a 5 wt line with backing. 

  


Please consider donating to my work. Donators will be able to download their files immediately using the link emailed or by logging into their account here. Otherwise, I have to manually email the files to you and depending on my work and travel schedule this can take several days. If you have not receive the files in 3 days, please email me to confirm.

1) a $5 donation: the STL files will be emailed immediately without delay

2) a $10 donation: includes 1 and also includes STEP files for all parts

 

The normal STL files I provide for free are lower resolution files in order to make the package small enough to email. They are perfectly fine to make good prints but if you would like to create very high resolution meshes (STL) to print, you can do so with the STEP files and a CAD application. The STEP files also allow you to modify or customize the design and include a special bonus - a insert for the back plate that you can modify with your own design, text or logo to customize your printed reel.

  1. Even Better Than Expected 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Jan 2017

    I got this thing printed and before I had it spooled up, I was fairly impressed. It had a decent click to it and it was fairly smooth. The performance of this reel on a rod blew me away. It fit 100yds of 20lb dracon backing and a 6 wt fly line. It did even more than I ever expected, and I caught a 2.5 lb hybrid-striped bass (wiper) on it. The reel handled it like a champ. This design is absolutely amazing and I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to get into fly fishing or simply expand their arsenal.

    Thanks Noah, glad you like the design and reel! A lot of work and refinement went into it and more is yet to come!

    Cheers,
    EC
