Question Aspen Reels?

I just stumbled onto these reels. Looks very nice at a good price point. Anyone here fished these things? Oops double post

I bought the 5/6 wt mid arbor model. It is a nice, well built reel. The only downside is that, at 5.8 ounces, it is a little heavy for some light 5 wt rods.m

Yeah, I was looking at the specs and thats about the only negative I can find.

If you had it to do over would you still make the purchase?

Thanks

Probably not. Fly rods are getting so light that I think a reel this heavy might create a problem. When you consider that one can get a Ross CLA or Galvan Standard for around $200.00, I think I would go another way than the Aspen, which is not to say anything bad about it.
