I purchased this reel thru Stillwater instead of Orvis due to the free Rio Line with the reel. went to Islemorada last weekend and loved the feel and action of the reel. Caught my 1st Bonefish off long Key state Park...Stillwater is a great online fly shop..fantastic service
Orvis Access V
Have fished the reel a few times in saltwater, and have been impressed with the drag performance - smooth and a good range of tension. Handled some long, strong runs by skipjack tuna with ease. Build quality and finish look great, but have not had it long enough to comment on durability. Only negative is the handle seems a bit 'thin' for my fingers.
