Re: Reel recommendation
for the money...it would be hard to beat the machined Battenkill from Orvis. For about $100 it is extremely light, very durable. and has a beautiful traditional look... I use it on my 5wt and 4wt. It balances extremely well with the lighter graphite rods... I don't use it with my bamboo rods as it is too light a reel to balance my boo's.
