: Wanted: Spey Reel

09-16-2003, 12:21 PM
...just found out that there are no longer spools avail for my reel and just added a THICK line to the arsenal, so need a reel that has alot of capacity. Don't want to break the bank(but don't want an explosion on the first run, either...), so was hoping to pick up something used. Anyone?

Grab a Redington AS in either the 11/12 or 13/14(depending on your rod/line needs) off EBay from Adam's Outlet.They are still some left for around $70US,which is a steal considering they are brand new.

I've been very happy with these reels since they first came out and own 8 of them.I wouldn't hesitate to buy more,especially at those prices.

Very solid and under rated reels IMHO,and have a ton of backing capacity.

I agree, I own 3 of them and do not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a reel with a lot of line capacity for use with the long-belly spey lines.
