New Orvis Mach reels

have been recalled. Seems that there is a problem with the handles.
One cast can change your day...maybe your life.

Thanks for that info. It could be quite timely for some of us as the season gets into gear.

....hmmmmm, my Orvis flyshop here in NY told me that they had been recalled due to a problem with the drag as well as the instructions for reversing the retrieve were incorrect. Someone on another fishing forum said he checked the drag on his new Mach reel and found the drag washer to be upside down. When he reversed it, the drag was fine. What a shame. It looked like a really nice reel.
