Question Lamson Radius Reels - Scott F Series Rods

Hi-

I've been looking at the Lamson Radius 1.5 as an option for my both Scott 703 and 764 Fibertouch rods. Does anyone have any experience with this line of fly reel?

What are your thoughts on the reel? How might this reel "balance" with the Fibertouch series of rods (I'm also interested to know if the reel foot may be too big for the slide-band on the F series rods)?

Thanks for any help!

I recently bought a close-out priced Velocity 1 for my Scott F703/3, and it seems to balance nicely casting out in the yard. Reel feet fit the bands easily. Can't speak for the Radius, but probably has similar dimensions for the feet (?). I will try the combo out this Friday on the stream. MC

I have 3 of these reels and love them, I use them for everything from bluegills to salmon. I have one on my 6wt(size 2) and have one on my 8wt and 9wt(size 3.5 on each). They balance very well, plus have a great drag on them. I would definetly recommend one to you for your rods.
