Grande Fly Reel

Redington's Grande Fly Reel is a rugged reel with a sleek look that can stand up to abuse over time. It takes machined aluminum construction and combines it with engineered structure to create a tool that maximizes your line control on the water. Its Super Torque drag is fully sealed and features a carbon fiber construction for an unmatched strength to weight ratio. Its V-spool design minimizes line stacking while simultaneously increasing the Grande's backing capacity. The machined Delrin handle has texture marks to give you superior hold and therefore control. The nylon case protects the reel when not in use.

I've put it through the wringer

Initially a great reel. After one year both of mine slip. The drag has spots where it will free spool and backlash. It has happened to Two reels of different weights bought at different times. Unfortunately it seems that it is a medium priced reel, marketed as high end but made with cheap components.

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This reel may be the best value in machined aluminum reels on the market! Fished false albacore on the fly and found this reel to be incredibly smooth with the same solid stopping power of the Behemoth and actually better than many of the other higher end reels. This is twice the price of the Behemoth which is a molded die cast reel which is arguably less durable so not really comparable to it but hard not to compare that at twice the price you could get a machined aluminum reel. I've had my Behemoth for 14 months, fished it 10 times, had it in 4 boats, banged it around a good bit and no issues at all. If I had the choice of buying the Behemoth or the Grande, I would probably buy both and still walk away with less than what I would have spent on a much higher end reel. Again, Redington has quickly become a guide favorite for its durability, serviceability, and feature set. I'm seeing why. While it won't win any beauty pageants like a Tibor, Nautilus or Abel, the Redington is an incredible value and makes salt water fly fishing hardware more accessible to more fly fishermen.
