Default Re: Shimano Ultegra Fly reels

I'm ok with old reels as a manufacturer can only keep spares for so long. Medalist's been out of prodcution for quite a while, so I give Pflueger a pass on that reel.

Sage/Reddington are fairly good.

However the majority of current production "better" US made reels act like only they have have the majical skills required to disassemble and reassemble.

See we wade fish in the salt seldom with a boat and get slat water all over the tackle. Not some scenic fly fishing magazine example, but butt deep in salt grass. Reels/rods/equipment get dirty and need full cleaning.
