Reach nirvana. The HD in this reel stands for “Heavy Duty.” The Guru HD has both a complete cage design (like the Arx) and type II finish in a pewter-tan color. Guru HD is a phenomenal, affordable Saltwater and/or Spey reel. Steadfast and stylish, Guru has long set a standard as a rugged, fully USA-machined, and ultra-reliable reel at a mind-blowing price. We’ve updated Guru’s spool geometry for enhanced retrieve rates, opened the porting to reduce weight and improve line drying, integrated the counterbalance, and introduced a curved cross section arbor for structural stability. Guru continues to prove that the quest for enlightenment can be anything but boring.
