Just got the new Redington Grande fly reel. Wow what a reel for salmon, and saltwater fishing. This reel is all machined from bar stock alum. The drag is super strong at 40 pounds. The drag handle is nice and big for easy adjusting. The reel has a sealed drag. Easy to take off spool. Captive knob so you can't loose it. Huge knob handle to crank the fish in. I bought it from Avid Max for $313 shipped. No tax and no shipping. Its a 9/10/11 weight fly reel. Its a 4 1/2 inch fly reel. I own many high end fly reels and I have to say this reel is a bargain and well made. You can also get it in 7/8/9 or 12/13/14 size reel. The reel is a little heavy but balance out my 9 foot 10 weight nice. This would be a killer reel for spey and switch rods. Good looking reel.
