Default Re: What do I really need in a fly reel?

I have the Guru II and it's a pretty sweet reel...light, smooth and pretty hassle free. Just make sure if you do pick up the Guru, be sure it has the red bearing/clutch...as it was an improvement from the previous models when they were changed to corrosion resistant one. I really do think your gonna love this reel, Lamson really prides themselves on the fact it has so few parts, it's very simple and virtually maintence free. I've had zero issues with mine, although I am careful with my gear but it has seen numerous submersions and accidental knocks against boulders and what not. Very durable little reel. I'd say go for it
