Thanks Jaybo! I decided the Ross Flyrise was just a little cheaper reel/s than what I wanted. The shop I bought them from allowed me to exchange the two reels and upgrade to a Lamson Konic II 1.5 for my 4wt rod and a Lamson Guru 2 for my 5 wt rod. Both on the Lamsons have sealed drags, larger arbors and a better build (I think) without adding to the weight.

I appreciate your input!
