: $80 Large Arbor Reel?

09-02-2002, 07:49 PM
I am looking into getting a reel and was wondering if anyone has had any expierience with the Orvis Rocky Mountain Large Arbor reels (good or bad)? They seem like a pretty good deal to me. I am looking to spend around $80 for a reel and would prefer a large arbor. I also like that the spools are only $15 and Orvis has such a good warranty program. What do you think?

Nate Bailey purchased an inexpensive "Okwawa" (spelling is waaaay off here) reel. Not pricey, reasonably well built and cheap as dirt. Shoot him a "PM" and he'll give you the correct name/spelling of the manufacture.
