cla

I'd lose that CLA 5.

I had two, one a 5 and one a 6 and had both of them seize and release when fighting fish in BC.

They look great and when just pulling line off to check the drag seemed fine but I had two situations where I lost big fish because of it, once with the guide standing there and afterwards said "get rid of that if you're going to fish big fish".

Spring for a Nautilus and you will never
I know they don't like me at Ross.......

My 3 cents worth.

Cla 5

I've had a copper cla 5 and 2 spools for 6 years now and fish them hard primarily in the late fall and spring when weather is cold and nasty, and have yet to have a problem...maybe I've been lucky

I have four of the Ross CLA's.

Two CLA 5's and two CLA 4's. The 5's have seen steelhead up to 15#'s. I can't count the number of trout on the 4's. Both well traveled for 7 years. Not one problem to date.

The CLA 5 should work fine with the 13'2 7wt...I guess there are exceptions.
