Default Re: Best 5 or 6 wt freshwater reel under $300.00

OK, Irons, I'll recomend Miami-built Nautilus FWX too. My post was intended to be more conceptual than specific but I think the FWX 5/6...we have two, one on my 905 ONE and one on my wife's Italian Gatti...is among the best trout reels made today. The great and super fine-tunable drag is exceeded though by Nautilus's NV; I am more critical of my bonefish reels than trout intended models and NV is super smooth and powerfull. Both are perfectly proportioned and a joy to fish. While we are mentioning reels that have not gotten enough recomendations, even though it is more costly than the $250 FWX, the Hatch 5+ is an exceptional reel.

I just picked up a new Hatch Typhoon 5 on ebay for $295. I think you can also get a Lamsom Litespeed for under $300. Both would be great reels.
