I know it is a deal that is hard to pass up. I got a few days before the sale is over. Just gotta decided which way to go.

I change the spool on the model 2 only a couple times a year to go with 4wt. I use 5wt most of the time but there are times when I need the 4wt. As for the model 3 I have a spool with 7wt line but I use 6wt the most often so it stay that way until I need the 7wt spool.

My kind of guy....sometimes it just makes more sense to buy more reels and less spools. I think I have like one spool to 5 reels.

Mike nver mentioned how much $$$ he wants to spend.
There's a used Tibor Tailwater in the classifieds that would be my dream real.
Also, the Orvis Battenkill Large Arbor is nicely built.

You know it Girl.. I'd share my kayak with you anytime.
If I could afford a Tibor it would be the berries.
Heck, a Pflueger Trion is a great Steelhead reel too.
I find Lamson to be u-g-l-y! The Force ULA is OK for eye-candy..

They are sweet, but at least you know Orvis is still being made, if you know what I mean. Allot of rod and reel companies folding.
