Default Re: Any thoughts on the new LL Bean 'Pocket Water' reel

So I emailed LL Bean about the weight, and (the relevant part of) their reply:

"This reel weighs 4 ounces and that is our manufacturing specified weight.This reel is set for 3 - 5 weight lines."

Rip Tide, the two do look similar, but the PW is a good bit heavier than both Retro models. *shrug*

I'm hoping the LL Bean store near me gets some in stock, but they've seriously downsized their fishing section recently, so I'm not holding my breath.
