Re: side by side reels.....
Nice looking reels. I like the Pfluger better but certainly appreciate the Orvis one as well. Very cool reel.
What I find interesting is the drag mechanism for the Orvis. It has a very similar "drag" adjustment knob/mechanism that they use on their early Hardy Made CFO's and BFR CFO's, both of which I don't like as much as the Hardy. In this instance, I like the adjustment of the Pflueger more. Just an observation and a personal preference thing.
