    I must admit they look good and the Lightness of the Reels will be a good match for light Rods.
    The matter that its made in Korea or China is up to each one of us if we buy it or not due to this matter. If it does put you off buying it then look towards Islander Reels the IR1 & IR2 . They are a bit more expensive.

    I think for the money the Orvis is a good buy with Great Customer Service.

    Islanders Customer Service is Good too.

    the orvis company backs all their products really well ...even the stuff at a cheaper price point

    Has Orvis announced a date this reel (Orvis Battenkill) will be sold to the public?

Basically, the click check provides a certain level of tension, and if you need more drag you use the palming rim. (Which is all you really need for trout. Heck, Lee Wulff even used to catch 20-lb salmon that way.)
    Quite correct, same idea as the Abel Creek, personally I wish they had just left the old BBS as it was.
