Martin Mohawk River
Multiplier MR72 Fly Reel

The Martin Mohawk River Multiplier MR72 Fly Reel is a two ball bearing, multiple action fly reel with a high speed 3:1 retrieve gear ratio. The Multiplier MR72 allows you to reel in slack fly line quickly, which is helpful if a hard charging fish such as a big trout or steelhead takes out a large amount of line and then changes direction. For each turn of the handle the spool turns three times.

The Martin Mohawk River Multiplier MR72 Fly Reel features high strength aluminum alloy spool, back and gear case and has an exclusive 360 degree floating drag system.

The Multiplier MR72 also has the following features:
  • Multiplier 3:1 gear ratio
  • Aluminum alloy construction
  • Powerful, floating disc drag system
  • Long sculptured power handles
  • Changeable to right or left retrieve
  • Two ball bearings drive
  • On/Off clicker
  • Soft reel bag included

I bought this reel to replace a Martin 72 that I have used for many years on the Salmon River.

This reel feels stronger and lighter and works great for gaining alot of line in a hurry.

Wish it had changable spools but for the price I'll just buy another for another rod.

Pros: Fast retrieve, priced right.
Cons: No changable spool
Best Uses: none
Great for trolling!

I got this as a gift paired with an LL Bean trolling series fly rod. Boy, what fun! I usually troll smelts with lead core on a 7 ft med-light action rod. Where I fish here in Maine is a small pond, a natural fishery and is loaded with trout and salmon! This rod and reel was soooo much fun fighting trout and salmon over the weekend!
Pros: Durable
Cons: Hard to keep line "level"
Best Uses: Trolling

I wanted to use this reel for trolling.The tolerances between the spool and casing would not allow me to use it like my older 72's. Line would fall between the spool and the sides. The tollerences in construction are very poor.The new spool removal system is worthless. The reel as a whole is not what I expect of the Martin Co. DougJr.
Pros: Cannot speak of any pros
Cons: Poor Construction, Tangles Line, New spool removeal system, Hard To Maintain
Best Uses: Fly Fishing

Bought this reel to use trolling flies, Teamed it up with a LL Bean Trolling Fly Rod. It works, the drag is one directional, and to get line out you need to release the drag fully to get a good fluid pull while casting, then reset the drag after letting the line you need out. It is heavy, the fish alert click system is a small plastic knob that rotates, looks like it should slide but it doesn't. I would say that I would compare this to a Pflueger Medalist as far as fit and finish, but feel that even at the low price from FishUSA it's still overpriced by $20-$30.

Cons: none

My last Martin reel i purchased was over 20 years ago and believe me it still works but i thought it was time for another. Please give it a try and you won't be disappointed.
Pros: Smooth Drag System, Line Doesn't Tangle, Easy Casting, Reliable, Durable, Smooth Reeling
Cons: none

This has alot of potential, the handle shaft where it meets the spool gear inside has way to much play between them i had to put a plastic sleeve over the shaft to get it to spin true, other wise the pool would tilt while cranking and bind against the frame and lock up tight ,i hope it is just mine because i would like to purchase another. Inspect yourself before purchase.
Pros: none
Cons: Poor Construction, Difficult To Reel
Best Uses: none
