What a fudging ripoff. A $120 die cast trout reel? OH WOW, a trout reel that has a drag that can fight a marlin<sarcasm>.

You want to impress me? Give me a large arbor trout reel for under $90 that is cnc machined. Lucky me their is one

These reels are constructed of fully machined Aluminum Magnesium. Magnesium has the best strength-to-weight ratio of any of the commonly used structural metals. It has excellent dimensional stability and is highly impact and dent resistant. The addition of magnesium to aluminum vastly improves its strength and corrosion resistance. So you now have a fly reel that will hold up to harsh treatment and give you uninterrupted service for many years to come.
