Default Re: wtb 4-5 weight reel for new glass rod

At the $100ish price point you cant go wrong with the Cortland Retro reel, heck even at $200 I don't think you could go wrong. It is a click pawl reel with a drag a lot like the Hardy Lightweight series. It isn't as loud as the Hardys, but still pretty loud. There is an exposed palming rim like the CFOs so you get get the best of both worlds. It is also very light and looks pretty good too. I use a Cortland Retro 1 or Hardy Flyweight on my Cabela's CGR 359 and Scott F2 6'6" 3 wt. Definitely worth looking in to...
