    I have an original Teton Tioga and a newer Teton Magnum, they have been solid reels for the price. Full cage frames, very tough. I heard the company was sold and relocated, not sure if they are still being made. milt

    Yeah, they're still being made. The company is based in Cincinnati, and the reels are manufactured in Iowa. I sell them. They're workhorses.

    I have had a few of the older Tioga models. I love them them. The anodizing on them is pretty tough. The only thing I noticed with the Tioga models is a little side to side play on the spool. No wobble. My 10LA has a lot of miles on it (in salt) and no complaints. They aren't really made for weight weenies. But if you want a well made USA reel at a reasonable price, this is one of them.

    I have had a few of the Teton models also. A bit nicer finish and tighter tolerances. I'm not sure what model the Classic would translate to.

    If I remember corectly the drag was used under license from J. Ryall. (If I am wrong somebody please correct me). The Ryalls are great reels of basically the same design that have tighter tolerances than the Tetons.

    Great reels and I hope they make it through the sell out. I want to replace some of the ones I sold and wish I hadn't.
