Default Re: New Reels - Cheeky Fly Fishing

A few things prevent me from considering one of these reels.

1) The price is way too high given the quality of lower priced, high-quality substitutes in each reel class.
2) If I wanted a progressive look, I would buy a Lamson, Nautilus with a custom color, or an Abel with a custom color and still save money.
3) A life time warranty is only as good as the individual or company who provides it. How long will they be around?
4) I'd rather not have to explain to a bunch of anglers on any given river why I chose to "Get Cheeky" and spend almost $700 w/tax on a 5/6/7 weight reel..... I'd rather buy a premium fly rod or an entire combo for that price.

After all, the reel won't do a whole lot if you do not have a decent rod to cast the line, that holds the fly, that hooks the fish.
