Default Re: Why are reels so expensive and are they worth it?

I think it depends on the reel/line weight as well. Im more apt to spend much moer money on a reel for my 8-11wts because i will be going after bigger fish which will need a good fade free drag to stop them. Now for smaller and lighter gear 6wt and under, to me the reel is just a line holder. Spend however much you feel like on them. If you're using a 3wt for mountain brookies you dont need something with a fully sealed no fade carbon disc drag. I would seriously even doubt you even need drag on a reel that size. Just something for you to think about.
