Didn't seem like such a steal to me.

I second that. Great barstock reel, GREAT drag system, no one except TFO has a better warranty

teflon_jones Do you already have a top quality line on the rod? If not, take some of the money you were going to spend on a reel and invest it in the line.

Cabela's has a really nice super large arbor reel. Haven't tried it out but the design is really cool and their products are always good quality.

mugsy Hey, if you liked the System I, would would love the System II. A great reel for the price.

Paxton Tioga is a great buy for the price (under 200), sealed with no exposed moving parts and virtually indestructible.

juro Welcome to the Forum!

Under $200, Freshwater reel for 5wt... lots of great choices! Almost down to preference.

Bauer Junior Mac 1 - 5wt line, $200 and what a good looking reel.



Ross Rhythm - just over at $210.

Advice on low-mid price reel

Hi there ~

This is my first post here . . . cool site!

I have been fly fishing for quite a few years, I wouldn't say I'm good by y'alls standards, but I can find my way around a stream on a good day

I have a 5 weight Sage DS2 & have been using an OLD System 1 456 reel for years. Its kinda noisy, but its done it's job.

Well the System one is ready to retire & I want to get a new reel, but I want to try to keep it under $200.

I would love to get some input on the subject.

Thanks a bunch
E
