I think I probably would have splashed out on the CFO if they'd done a IV version - the III seemed a touch small to me for a #6 line. Maybe next Birthday. Or Christmas. Or Father's Day. Or....

And the CFO's are a bit small in their capacity. But the old ones are one of the finest pieces of equipment you can get. The sound of the old click pawl CFO's just blend in with the sound of the river around you.
