    Default What color reel?

    There seem to be alot of diferent color reels out there what do you guys think looks best? In my search for a new outfit I am trying to figure out which color looks best on a reel. Even though its different from one person to the next I am curious to hear what you guys(and gals) think. At this point in time I belive the redington rise in burnt orange looks awsome but thats me.

    The orange redington is sweet! I almost bought one but decided to go with a red Allen Trout reel since it matched the rod better. Im all about festive colors with reels, i painted one really nuts looking. It has color shifting paint on it, so pending on the direction you hold it and look at it its many colors

    i need to take some more, it turns all sorts of crazy colors. I also painted the spool of my Sage 3850CF with the green so its changes from green to orangeish to rusty purple

    I plan to at some point airbrush my alphaII, any ab paint with auto clear cote should do fine. A friend of mine has a mountain bike that shifty blue. is sweet.

    Here are a few options
    While my current favorite is my red Allen Trout 3/4, I also have a purely aesthetic hankering for one of those Abel Brown Trout patterned reels... my budget gives that idea two thumbs way down however!

    The advantage to the Allen Trout reel colors is they come on a great reel at a great price. While you may originally be getting one cus you think the red looks awesome threaded on to your matching rod, the performance, the warranty, and the customer service you get with the Allen gear makes it totally worth it. And again, the red just looks downright cool!

    Black, preferably matte. Or any other low key, non-shiny color for me.
