Tibor reels are made “by fishermen for fishermen,” and the Juracsik family is proud their products are 100% “Made in the USA.” With the exception of the ball bearings, every part of every reel is precision machined and hand assembled in their Delray Beach facility. Ted’s belief in design based on simplicity and functionality goes back to his days as a young apprentice. “The old masters always told me the most beautiful machines have the least moving parts,” he says.
In 2016, Tibor Reels earned 68 new world records according to the International Game Fish Association (IGFA). This brings the Tibor’s World Record count to over 900 – more than any other fly fishing reel in history. IGFA Hall of Fame fisherman, Lefty Kreh, describes Tibor Reels as “the finest saltwater reels I have ever used.” They are the prized possession of every fisherman who owns one. Each is capable of delivering a lifetime of virtually maintenance-free fishing enjoyment for which Tibor Reels are famous.
