I received my rod today I got it brand new for $45 w/ 5 year warranty. It is a 9' 6wt St. Croix Triumph rod with Mod-Fast action. I will be fishing for steelhead/rainbows and the river smallies in Ohio with it while doing some occasional pond fishing for bass.
The Reels I have been looking at are
1. Allen Fly Co Trout reel in 5/7
2. G.Loomis Venture fly reel
3. Ross Worldwide Flyrise
Those are in my price range which is around 100-120. Any suggestions would be welcomed and appreciated!
You might want to check this out for the price... $100 and those reels have an amazing feel to them. Probably the best drag I have ever used. Only downside, and some say it isn't much of a downside at all, is this reel is not machined, it is pressure cast.
