A family-owned business, Tibor (pronounced TEE-bor) Reel Corporation has been the world leader in the design and manufacture of the highest quality fly fishing reels for over 35 years. After escaping Soviet controlled Hungary and immigrating to the U.S. in 1958, master machinist, fisherman and founder, Ted “Tibor” developed the legendary Billy Pate Fly Reel in 1976 which established new standards of quality, design, and durability for saltwater fly reels. In 1995, the internationally acclaimed line of Tibor Reels was la Juracsik unched, followed by the Tibor Light, the Tibor QC, the Tibor Spey, and in 2011, The Tibor Signature Series – in honor of their 35th anniversary.
The Juracsik family is proud their products are 100% “Made and assembled in the USA” and carry a lifetime warranty. With the exception of the ball bearings, every part of every reel is precision machined and hand assembled in their Delray Beach, Florida facility. Ted’s design philosophy is based on simplicity and functionality and goes back to his days as a young apprentice in Hungary. “The old masters always told me the most beautiful machines have the least moving parts,” he says.
Juracsik says, “Making a quality product in an age when American manufacturing is under siege is a great source of pride for us. Although we are extremely proud of our world record achievements, our greatest reward comes from knowing that our reels are built to last and are often passed down from generation to generation.”
