I had one for a while. Good reel for the price and it does have a strong drag.

That being said, for around $100-$150, there are probably better reels. The Ross is a cast aluminum reel, and is easy to scratch and ding, in my experience at least.

I'd look into Allen Fly Fishing. They are a forum sponsor, and its always good to support them. But more than that, they have perhaps the best customer service in the industry, and products that aren't just good for the price: they are amazing for the price.

Look at the Allen Trout II Reel. Great looking 100% machined reel for $144. Free shipping right now as well. Or if the extra $40 matters, look at the cheaper Allen ATS reel.

I would save my pennies for a little bit longer and grab a Ross CLA. Great reels that will last forever and made in Colorado!

for me it's about something only being worth so much money. after a certain point the extra dollars don't seem to buy you more quality comesurate w/ the addtional dollars. i hunt alot. this has been very true w/ optics. thanks for the imput to all.
