Have one

I have a blue large arbor 10wt reel ffrom them. I like it. I have the framed model though. It's a good value. What do you plan in using it for?

Mike - Thx for responding. I happened across a deal that's potentially 'too good to pass up'...

SW use, primarily chasing ol' pajamas, matched w/ either one of my 9 wts or my 10 wt. Most likely would load it w/ a 10 wt line. Not sure if this is the framed model. It's the carbon fiber disc drag.
