Saw a fairly kind reveiw of a Redington Budget Salmon reel ,in a British magazine ,any thoughts on these reels they sell for £60. so you guys would pay $60odd for them .Guess there made in China ,but I need a budget reel or have to sell the trout Hardys and my son who would inherit them would not be a happy bunny .
I don't know about the new Budget Salmon reels from Redington; however, I own three of the no longer made Redington AS reels, one AS 11/12 and two AS 13/14's. They are fine reels that I wish were still in production, and I've had no problems with them of any sort. If the new Budget Salmon reels are as good, they are a bargain.
The reel that Fred saw this weekend is called a Brakewater, light blue finish. Think there are two sizes, don't qoute me, a 9/10 and a 11/12. I have the 11/12 and like it.
