RE:Reels

I have heard very good things about the ULAs but at the same time I sort of question the structural integrity of them. They do not seem overely sturdy. For 3 weights they seem okay but for heavy duty Spey/saltwater use I would give them a second thought, escpecially if you truly use and ABUSE your gear.

RE:Reels

Good feedback... but if I understand correctly, the ULA Saltwater/Spey is the rugged older brother of the ULA Force and Purist series reels. From what I've heard it's built stout, has a higher torque conical sealed drag system and room for 300 yards of 30# test backing over a full flyline! The catalog shows it's use in a Spey rodder's hands and it definitely looks the part. I'll be looking for it at the fly show here in the northeast (Wilmington MA) this weekend.

My 2001 reel strategy du jour is to get the Canyon #4 to match the RPLXi (like Mr.Doogue) and am now considering the ULA/SWS for a new Spey reel (among others).
