New Cheeky Fly Reels

News, Press Release — By on August 15, 2012 10:33 pm


After two years of tweaking designs, blowing up reels and burning through drags, Cheeky Fly Fishing is set to unveil its full line of fly reels in August 2012. New to Cheeky’s line are the Stealth 325, Thrash 475 and Dozer 525, complementing its currently available Ambush 375 and Mojo 425 reels.


Lightweight, dynamic, and tough, this lineup over delivers on performance and provides anglers with Cheeky’s signature style. “The lineup boasts five sizes of reels, each incorporating the same design philosophy,” says co-founder Pete Crommett. “Our philosophy can be described using one word: simple.”

Precision machining, high quality materials and dependability make Cheeky Fly Reels the ultimate weapon for fly fishing enthusiasts. “They beg to be thrown in the bottom of a boat or the back of a truck,” says Crommett. “These reels are workhorses that want to be used and used hard.”

Whether you’re stalking trout in clear water with the Stealth 325 or teasing marlin offshore with the Dozer 525, every fisherman is looking for that edge and Cheeky reels give anglers just that.

    I am just going to say a few things. Its hard to see a company go from Made In the USA and just give up. From their first reels that were amazing(maybe pricey) to this Korean(or wherever) made filth! Nice job on lowering the price Cheeky, but think you could have done it without sacrificing USA made and all the other noticeable differences. (Compare the old features of the MOJO 425 to the ones and the photos too. You will see the difference) If i wanted something made in korea I am going to buy an Orvis not a Cheeky, sorry guys.

    JohnnyZ, where do you think orvis is made? You wanna talk about cheap, Orvis? The kings of cutrate that haven’t produced a quality product since before I was born. Yeah the reels got shipped over seas…. Becaus of people like you whining about the domestic mojo being pricey, then you cry when the drop the price and outsource. I guess you hold the secrets to the perfect business model that pleases everyone 100% of the time.

    Not to mention why not deal with a company that when you call, you actually talk to an owner. But hey it’s your rite to voice your opinion. I guess now you’ll cry about Hatch, Nautilus,Tibor, Abel, and galvan being pricey as well. Then they’ll drop the price and cry when these companies outsource (doubtful tho a couple on that list ever will).

    Made in America stands for something. I will pay the additional money to purchase something made here in the USA. If the price is right you can still produce a great product here in the US and make a profit. You will not get rich in the fly reel market because it is a niche market, but if you provide a great product, good customer service, and craftsmenship of American workers you will grow that niche market into something to be proud of.

    Snowman, You misunderstood me. I said if I actually was going to buy something that was outsourced to Korea(which I wouldn’t) I would not buy a Cheeky over Orvis. I would go and get something made in America though. I would like to support my country’s economy not help it get destroyed. Also, I can tell you from working in the manufacturing industry that there is a reason why most quality components a.k.a come out of the USA. Don’t get me wrong about Cheeky, I liked there business idea and designs.I am just disappointed on the outsourcing and the serious decrease of quality and features of the reel. See if you can find the old list of features for the Mojo and the new one. Also take a hard look at the components, you will notice the differences.

    So the ‘new look’ in fly fishing trendy marketing is to start out with a couple of high-end, high-priced and high-quality reels made in the USA and blast them all over the marketplace (including YouTube…that’s now false advertising) then once the release of the full line comes to market they are not even close to being the same reel? I get it…retro-marketing is the new tres’ chic, the bait and switch is alive and well! Really, if there are substantial quality controls in place and materials, precision machining, anodizing process and every part used is the same or better than the original…tell us.

    Want to set a new fashion trend and make a statement, Cheeky…stand up and tell the world where you took the manufacturing, haul out the old reels for comparison and then prove it.

    Slick, hip and cool…you’re not even a big brand so knock them all off the perch and try just telling the truth. Of course you could just make another video and tell us all ‘my first word was fish’ but that’s been done ad nauseaum so you’ll have to fine-tune the spin.

    I can understand if you wish to support your local US industry, but don’t fool yourself in thinking that quality only comes out of the US or that made in the US means quality,
    At least we down here in Australia know a good product when we see it and aren’t blinded by ignorance, we’ll happily have these filthy reels that run circles around anything else within the price range, espcially with something like tuna.
