Default Re: starter reel, budget 40-60

A little late to post,

but FLY LOGIC reels are made in the USA........and can be found on Ebay for a rather cheap price..........the drag system on the FLP reels is the best I have ever used......I have used the FLP 567 reel to land salmon that ran up to 28 pounds........no kidding.........the reel is a workhorse......they also sell FLO reels..........the upperend of their line.....these reels are fancy looking and cost quite a bit of money!!!!.........they have regular arbor and large arbor models available in the FLO..........lots of neat colors too!!!!!

the FLP comes in 345, 567 and 890, for a 5 wt line you could use the 345 with about 80 yards backing........or go with the 567 and you could put a bunch of backing on....

these reels are great............their customer service is the best I have ever come across!!!!
