I have a question concerning your quoted specs. The Orvis website lists the size V reel as weighing 5.88 oz and measuring 4.0" in diameter. Are your numbers the result of weighing & measuring the reel yourself?

I wouldn't be surprised at a difference as I have purchased reels that were grossly mis-represented on company websites.

Your numbers are for a different Orvis reel.

No gross mis-representations; the numbers I posted are coreect for this reel as per Orvis' info.
