Midland, MI (JULY 15, 2015) — Michigan-based fly-fishing company Scientific Anglers is proud to announce the launch of its Ampere series of fly reels. Comprised of three unique models, the Ampere series will cover the spectrum of angling pursuits from blue- gill to bonefish.

The Ampere, a lightweight cast-aluminum large-arbor reel, features a Rulon-to-stain- less stacked disc drag system with continuous adjustment and is available in sizes II and IV, line weights 4-9. The Ampere Electron, a large-arbor machined aluminum reel, features a fully sealed stacked carbon fiber/stainless steel washer drag system, and will be available in sizes II through IV, line weights 3-9. The Ampere Voltage, machined from 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum, features a fully sealed 4 and 6 carbon fiber/stain- less steel washer drag system and will be available in sizes II-V, line weights 3-10.

“Scientific Anglers has a long history of manufacturing premium, durable fly reels,” said marketing manager John Van Vleet. “The Ampere series has been in the works for over a year now and we feel that these reels not only live up to the standards set by our previous reels, but far surpass them in every way. From budget-conscious an- glers to serious saltwater addicts, the Ampere series offers something for everyone.”

The Ampere will retail for $89.95-99.95 MSRP; the Ampere Electron $165-185; and the Ampere Voltage $205-235. All Ampere reels will be available at Scientific Anglers dealers in September of 2015.
