: Redington AL vs Orvis CFO

03-08-2005, 05:58 PM
Hello, never fly-fished in salt and am planning my first trip to the Bahams for Bonefish. I have acquired two Orvis CFO V - Saltwater Disk Drag reels and one Redington AL 7/8. From your experience, should I sell the CFO's and keep the Redington and add another Redington as backup; or sell the Redington and add a third CFO?

I am fishing Orvis Trident TL's and/or Trident TLS's. I personally like the CFO better because of the weight and the CFO V holds 7-8-9 wt lines.

Thanks, and I can't wait... Traveller
