Re: side by side reels.....
Cool thread, I've have a later versioned Orvis Madison that doesn't impress me much. I have been on the look out for a medalist based Madison for some time. Its a reel that still evades me.
I'm just wondering, and would like to ask a question to the man who has both, "Do you think the Orvis version improved on the original?" I honestly like Medalists, and am building up a small collection. This Orvis version is a reel I wish to one day acquire.
I tend to collect both Pfluegers, and Martins. When it comes down to it, I feel there all I really need.
