    The CLA is probably the best and most affordable reel machined and made in the US. I had a #2 for a brief period ... I bought it used (from a forum member actually) to match my 5wt XP I had built. Generally I put function on top, but this reel that is called Grey Mist is quite purple in color. I just couldn't have a purple reel on my new green Sage XP.
    But it was nice reel. Just don't get the "grey mist" ... unless you want a purple reel.

    I got lucky and stumbled onto a sale at the sportsman's box store that had an Evolution LT in dark green for like $175 or something. So I had no choice but to buy it ... I would have been losing money if I didn't!! I sold the CLA on ebay for $100 or so and felt good about the deal (though I ended up paying close to full price on the Evo after buying and selling the CLA).

    Dean,

    I have the LT 0 in gray mist, and it is a true gray. But I know what you mean about the color. I have a Ross Rhythm in gray, and when I bought a spare spool for it a few years ago, the spare looks purple instead of gray. It does not match the reel frame at all when I switch lines. I know exactly which one is the spare and which one is the original.

    It looks like their anodizing is a bit inconsistent over there.

    ....Just one more cast...
