A level above. A special edition reel, this is the Guru Series II reel finished in a smooth black type II anodize. Steadfast and stylish, Guru has long set a standard for enlightened excellence as a rugged, fully USA-machined, and ultra-reliable reel at a phenomenal price. The Guru Series II goes a level above. We’ve updated the spool geometry for enhanced retrieve rates. Opened the porting to reduce weight and improve line drying. Integrated the counterbalance. Plus introduced a curved cross-section for structural stability. Ultimately, by increasing the arbor to a larger diameter and making the spool narrower—all while decreasing its total weight and parts—the Series II be your Guru for life.
