I have had this reel and an extra spool for if for a a few months now, I REALLY like the arbor size and weight for the 5/6 which is what I'm. Using with orvis hydros 5 wt and a rio indicator 4 wt line on the other spool. My biggest problem is now which rod gets the reel!! I love this product. It balances out my 10 ft 4 wt nymping Rod. And hás drag like a champ. Im also throwing the same reel, 2nd spool on my 5 wt fast action 9 ft rod, which I use a lot. The quality is very good the color does not just "scratch" off on the reel I've had mine dropped and in water a few times. No problem. I had another brand new reel that was from another company that was about 120$, I accidentally dropped my rod and the reel hit the ground, bending it so it wasn't circular anymore. Done. Get this reel and be prepared to buy another spool, they look really cool when you buy spools that are different colors like I've got.
