Ever Hear of this?
 
I am looking for an inexpensive reel for my 5wt spare outfit. I will be targeting smallies. I really never use the drag system but I was looking at this and it look liked a good deal. Any info? Its for a 5wt combo

Did you end up with this reel? I'm looking at another Airflow and curious your thoughts.

Want a deal? Check out Allen Flyfishing - they are a business member on this board and have some killer deals on all kinds of gear: Allen & Co., Products Page

I'm not affiliated in any way with them, just have heard a lot of good about them and their products. Just another option.

Kelly.

Thanks Kelly. I have heard lots of good things and one of the Allen reels is on the top of the list. I need something in a 9 wt reel and so far all I see is the one reel from allen. I did notice another post that Justin talked about another reel his co is selling but I dont seem to find it on his page. I sent him a PM.

Airflo is kinda the UK equivalent of Scientific Anglers here: a quality brand, but manufacturer of only a small portion of what carries their label. I'd bet that reel is just fine, and likely comes out of the same asian factory as reels for Cabelas, etc.
