Default Re: Solitude Reels?

I have a couple of the Michigan made Solitude reels. They are nice enough reels. Only problem I have is they came with lifetime warranties. Several years back the original founder sold the company. The first thing out of the box the new owners did was to say they would NOT honor the warranty on any existing reels. They had a fairly loyal following amongst midwest steelheaders, but to be honest, I think the change in warranty policy turned alot of folks off to buying another.

Before you buy one, I'd suggest you make sure you check the specs on the reel, the reels weigh between 6 - 8 oz depending on the model, but it sounds like that's what you might want.
