Here are some current model reels that you can do research on. I am sure that there are other models out there. These were the first ones to come to mind.

Abel Creek 1 Standard Arbor
Abel Creek 2 Large Arbor
Abel TR 2
Islander IR3
Islander IR4 Large Arbor
Hardy LRH Lightweight
Hardy Princess
Hardy Perfect 3 1/8"
Galvan Brookie 4/5
Redington Drift 5/6
Orvis Battenkill III

Don't forget the recently introduced Abel Classic. Its click & pawl design is similar to Hardy's.

It's made in USA and a lot cheaper than a Hardy Perfect. Then again, it's not a Hardy Perfect. It's still pretty darn cool. :D

I'll add the Hardy Ultralite 4000cc (click check) for 4,5,6 wt rods

Abel, Hardy, and Orvis all have click pawl reels in current production. If you were looking for something a little cheaper but still very functional, there is the Cortland Retro. You can pick one up for $75-125 and they are a pretty sweet reel for the money.

Welcome to the forum Steven. My favorite c & p is the Hardy "Lightweight" series.Korean made, light, well made and will not cost you a "King's Ransom". :D JMHO.

Welcome to the forum

I've got a couple Sage Click reels, an older and new version. Both are quite nice.

I had a Lamson Purist that I just didnt love so I sold it.
