- Redington Zero
- weight line
20-30 uses on it now. Click drag shows zero weakening in contrast to my Redington Zero's click drag which after fewer uses was too weak to prevent overruns. I use 3 weight line on the Hardy without issue but cannot say if some real thin long leader could get snagged or entrapped. For my use - perfect.
This reel worked flawlessly on two of my most recent trout fishing trips. I was able to pull line out to cast & retrieve line without any trouble. I'm anticipating years of use at my favorite trout stream.
Super light weight reel. Great for euro nymphing. Fast retrieve. Great rim to palm the reel.
