Mine has got to be Hardy. They have a reel for all styles of fishing. I know they may not be the most technical reel in the world but that "Hardy Scream" when a big fish runs is music to my ears.Zane for salt and A Perfect for fresh water.

I'm with ya on that one. I love my 2 Bougle Mark IVs...they see 95% of my fishing time and yes, I do love that scream when a big fish takes off.

Rip,

Is the drag caliper or disc? I've also seen them in graphite three spoke style.

Seriously now, I still fish my first Hardy more than any other reel for trout (a Featherweight) I have a few others that get a lot of use but other than Hardy I like the CFO's, course they were Hardy built so I guess I just voted Hardy again.

I'm a big Lamson and Hardy fan. I have two Konics, a Guru 2.0, a Hardy Zane and two Demons which are made from barstock aluminium but have plastic spools.

Mine is Martin and I mean the old Classics that were USA Made. I have several of their old reels only one of the Classics it is the Classic M-78 that takes 7 & 8 Weight line I use it on my Corland 9 ft Bass rod. On my trout Rods, I use one of their M-65 Trout Reels on my Diamondback Trout Rod and I have an extra Spool for it. One spool has WF-5F line and the other is strung with DT-5F. On My Browning Short rod I have a M-61 El-Cheapo with WF-4F. I have had them for several years and they are still working GREAT!!!! I am looking for some more of their Classic reels . Please see my Ad in the classifieds.
Jim
