I've been using LA reels for the past couple years, but recently bought
two Orvis BBS III reels for my 7'6" wts. I spooled a Cortland 444 on one
reel, and a SA GPX on the other. The Cortland line came off without any
coiling yesterday, but the GPX looked like a Slinky
! Both were
put on last Friday. I also pulled out a LA reel with a brand new GPX (5wt)
that was put on about one year ago, and that line wasn't coiled at all.
Soooo.....Replace the BBS reels with larger arbor reels, keep the line
off the reel when not in use (current state), or quit complaining
P.S. I bought the BBS reels for their light weight, and would like to keep any new reel light and CHEAP.
