Just so everyone's clear: the Leeda is the same reel that Cortland markets as the Magnum reel. The larger 200D is my standard spey reel. Both are anodized the same darkish brown. The Cortland version is a great value, and with the Leeda name-sticker, it can be even more so. I picked up a Leeda 200D in Canada at a discount price of around $45 US, just to have a spare.
