Gimme a good reason not to,

buy a new Valentine reel. Last falls albie season convinced me of the need for a top of the line reel. I looked around and am 90% settled on a Valentine for a 10/11 wt. A good friend has owned one for 16 yrs. and swears by it. I also like the stationary spool on the line out plus the spool revolves 3 times for every 2 cranks of the handle. At Marlboro I asked everyone, "Why should I buy yours" and came away unimpressed. Got the cash and unless someone comes up with a good reason not to I`ll buy one on Sun.
