Featuring an open, contemporary aesthetic while bringing back the classic MXP teardrop design, the RX series is built on two different size drag packages. Four lighter reels handling 2 wt. through 8 wt. lines and three larger reels, with five times the drag surface area, for 8 wt. through 13 wt lines. The RX carbon fiber sealed drag delivers silky smooth performance in all conditions. Designed, manufactured, and handcrafted in Oregon, USA.
RX 1, 2, 3 and 4 Designed, manufactured, and handcrafted in Oregon, USA. The new contemporary RX is true high performance elegance. Featherweight RX1, RX2, RX3, and RX4 reels feature improved seals, reduced weight and quicker line retrieval than their RX predecessors. The sealed carbon fiber drag, V-Arbor spool, and lightweight design make them the fly reel of choice for any angler and any destination, from trout to bonefish.
RX 5, 6 and 7 To subdue the power of charging GT’s and jumping Tarpon the large RX5, RX6, and RX7 are built for maximum stopping power. Designed using race car technology, the drag system incorporates multiple carbon fiber discs, generating more than twice the drag pressure of the previous RX. The RX features a stronger structure, improved seals, lighter weight, and quicker line retrieval.

Bauer introduced for 2011 the next generation Mackenzie, the CFX. This solid reel encompasses the retro look of the original award winning Mackenzie and the sealed, floating carbon fiber disc drag of the RX. The reel features a clean narrow appearance with classic multi-sized porting. The V-Arbor spool retains the detented star drag knob when removed from the reel frame so there are no loose parts. The spool and drag system rotate on sealed, precision stainless steel ball bearings. The non-corrosive, patented Bauer zero-backlash clutch permits the user to easily change retrieve direction without tools. The highly developed floating carbon fiber composite drag system delivers silky smooth performance at all settings and requires no maintenance.
The CFX model is available in five sizes for 3 wt. through 9 wt. lines. The reel is light, simple and beautiful.
