Default Re: Cheap reel for my cheap Spey set-up

Orvis is having a sale on their Battenkill Bar Stock reels. I picked up one of their sizeV reels for my 8wt spey rod. It doesn't have the best drag, you probably wouldn't want to use it for salmon but it seems to work just fine for what I'm catching in the lower American. The winter steelhead are going to be interesting, we will see how that goes, but for $89, you can't complain!
