Why We Like The Clearwater LA Cassette Reel

Still one of the best performance-to-value reels in the industry, Orvis' Clearwater LA Cassette Reel is one of our favorite choices for anglers looking for their first large arbor reel or trying to save some cash for the rest of their kit. This option balances properly with your favorite rod, and features a powerful inline, Rulon-to-stainless, stacked disc drag that holds its own against high-performance machined reels. The Clearwater's positive click drag knob provides consistent settings every time, and easily converts to either left- or right-hand retrieve depending on your preference. Plus, we love the new stealthy matte-gray powder-coat finish to help us sneak up on unsuspecting fish.
