Perfect Intro Reel
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I grew up spin fishing and occasionally fly fished. With the warm winter we've had in Utah I've decided to get into fly fishing. This reel was recommended to me as a solid reel for a good price. So far I've been really pleased with it. My father has been fly fishing for years and tried it out for a few days. He's now considering snagging one for himself.
Great Reel at Starter Price
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
This is a great reel at an even better price. I have a number of high end trout reels and have been fishing for decades and one thing I have learned is that trout reels don't need the stopping power or disc drag of high end salt water reels. Having said that, the Redington ID has both and looks great. You could pay hundreds more, but if you care about getting out on the water with a reliable rig for trout fishing, this reel should be at the top of your list. After fishing with it all day, I noticed it was just as good and as efficient as all my other reels and looks just as good. The guide I was fishing with recommends them highly and I've noticed more and more guides are switching to Redington's high value no nonsense equipment. I'm a believer.
So nice I got it twice
Got one of these for myself a short time ago, liked it enough I got another for a gift.
Awesome reel at a great price. Good construction and love that you can purchase pre spooled.
