Brilliant design

I was after a reel for the 890C rod I was using, searched the specs on quite a few brands, and kept coming back to this one ! Middle of the road price wise, lightest for size, the clicker makes "just the right sound", and, the reel, and case it comes in, simply look classy as ! I imagine it will easily outlast my needs, and I think it's the best value out there in my eye's.

Impressed

Jealous! My wife got this reel. Looks even better in real life and the drag is slick, best I've experienced (and I'm a gear snob).

Another great purchase

After directly comparing this with another more expensive, major brand, the Epic Backcountry fly reel is clearly superior. It has been carefully designed with a large arbour, sealed drag and a lovely satin finish.
