Orvis Mach IV
I ended up picking up an Orvis Mach IV reel a couple of days ago for $155 USD. Orvis was having a sale and I couldn't resist. I like it so far. I'm going to pair it with my new TFO TiCrX 8wt and use it down on the Texas coast for my upcoming flats fishing venture.
What are your thoughts on this reel? I'm stuck with it now, but looking forward to hopefully getting some good lifelong use out of it. This is my first reel with a sealed drag and I like it. I hope it can stand up to Bull Reds, Jacks, Permit, Salmon, big LMB and anything else I can throw at it.
