    Yes!

    They have a new clicker reel due shortly. The new SA reel (System) isn't much though so I won't last long. THe new Orvis reel will.

    I think the fly line aspect is much bigger than the Ross Reel part. I have long considered the huge 3M technological aspect of SA to be its dominent driving force; can a retail orinted company maintain that advantage?

    Considering the technological advancements Orvis has made in fly rod material, I think SA will continue to have the kind of push and capabilities to make cutting edge fly lines as it always has. My guess is, many of teh fly line technology was developed by the SA staff and not so much 3M anyway so there may be very little difference...

    Guess only time will tell though...

    At the very least it will be interesting to see how this all shakes out.
