I had the regular RLS combo for a day. Felt good casting first time out... for about 5 minutes, then the last section snapped in half randomly. Didn't even get to catch a fish on it. Took it back and got something else. Granted that was a 5 wt original RLS combo, not the RLS+ which just came out. Their return policy is good though. The reel is decent, not great, but maybe I'm a little biased.
