Re: Cabelas Wind River Reel?
Wind River reels are excellent for the price. I have all 3. They are heavy but they balance nicely on 9' rods. The drag is quite good. I've fought some large snook and redfish who were no match for the reel.
Compared to the current Cahill, there's no comparison. The Cahill drag is squirrelly and unreliable. I highly recommend the Wind River over the Cahill.
For $20, you can't find a better reel. If you're worried about spare parts, buy two (or 5).
