    Beautiful, smooth action, but Al alloy too soft
    This reel is work of art. Nice machining on this large arbor reel. Amazingly smooth action, no "stiction" (start-up friction greater than the free-moving... more

    I completely agree with this assessment. Everything is good but the cosmetics. Very weak metal.

    Both me, BigHiz and George do not test for LLBean...although we probably should. We fish 100 plus days a year mainly upstate NY. We each have 3-4 each of every reels and fly rods that LLBean sells or has sold over the years. We try all these reels and rods in all kinds of environments to try to determine the good the bad and the ugly. We use every reel and rod brutally hard and try to comment on deficiency's we find from actual extreme use. Our hope is for LLBean to use feedback from users and correct issues and improve their products. We use LLBeans gear because they have to best warranty...period.

    I'm confused. There are 7 comments for this reel. 2 of the 7 thank Big Hiz and George for their help evaluating this reel. Are these two guys official testers for LLBean? Or perhaps they're two guys that like to hang out by the creek and give their 2 cents on whatever.
