An old Lamson saltwater series reel, in size “permit” would be the ideal weight and volume for a 7wt Spey rod. Made in USA albeit in the mid 1990’s. As good as any of the expensive Abel cork drags and in my mind without giant logos of any kind better looking. In fact it was love at first sight for me. If you can find one should run you between $200-300 in mint condition. They originally cost more than twice that in 1990s dollars. An added bonus is that Archuleta kind of specializes in older lamsons so you can buy with confidence knowing there is a good doctor if one ever gets sick!
