The other thread kind of got past the $$ level of what I would consider value.
My neighbor bought an Okuma Integrity & sprare spool for under $120 at the show this weekend. As far as using it for stripers, blues & albies it appears to be more than adequate - it appears to be a similar to the SA2 in it's design.
Anyone have any experience/ feedback with these fly reels specifically?
Between the TFO rods & these reels - I think high quality "beginner" outfits just came down in price $200 -$300.
