Default Re: Orvis & Hardy

A side from 2 Allen Kraken 3 reels, I have Access IV in Titanium for my Helios 5wt and Zenith 7wt and really liking it. The reel is light, it is easy to adjust the drag and the drag setting has numbers for easy dialing. Although I take care of reels and rods, I do tend to be careless with them during fishing. The reel has been dunked and dragged in the sand and rocks. The sand and rocks will get into between the line and on the reel, but I just give it a little shake in the water and ready to fish.

Hardy reels are beautiful, but I don't think they are fully sealed with the Access are. However, they should be great for your 4 wt
