    Default Ross Rhythm: Worth Buying at a Discount?

    The nearby L.L. Bean is selling these reels for $150. I checked them out a
    few days ago, and they seemed fine. I was just wondering if anyone has
    been satisfied with the reels reliability. I'd use the #2.5 size, and it be
    used on my 6wt rod.

    Ross reels are great, plus the Rhythm is made in America. Worth purchasing at full price if you can afford it, buying at a discount is a no brainer in my book.

    Well.....I bought two #3 Rhythm reels tonight, and the buyer's remorse is
    setting in. The incoming click sounds more like a worn bicycle
    chain. The outgoing click is dandy. I looked at the Evolution reels, and they
    had a pleasant click in both directions. If I keep these reels, it might be wise to buy a few of those cheesey plastic escapement rings.

    I dunno............................................. ...

    Frank, it's going to be like fishing with Sharkskin for the first time. After 10 minutes of fishing you don't even notice the weird sound it makes. You got a great reel there.

    Hi Mojo, I've read enough of you posts to respect your opinion. Guess I'll
    keep them for now: LL Bean is open 24/7 until Christmas Eve....LOL!!!!

    Mojo is right, the clicks are audible, but theyre not harsh or loud. Stick with that reel, if you dont like it you could probably sell them very easily at the discount price.

    I've got a #1 and #1.5. These aren't loud as I see it. Quiet compared to other reels, IMO. The drag works great. I've caught smallies and trout with both, and the drags worked fine. The machining, fit and finish is very nice.

    Hi Guys,
    I spun the reels again this morning, and finally figured out what the incoming clicker sounds like: the jib winches on our sailboat. The reels are
    much more quiet, of course, but with a microphone.......!

    The best test is out on the water, I suppose
