new orvis reels

Have you guys seen the new cheap orvis reels? The encounter and clearwater II. They're both large arbor with center, rulon to stainless, stacked drags. The difference is the encounter is $30 cheaper but made of graphite instead of aluminum. I want to play with them in person but I could see picking up one for my 7 weight. I'm just debating how much I care about the aluminum vs graphite.

I've found the graphite reels are plenty strong enough versus aluminum, so all you're really giving up with graphite is looks.
