Product Review (submitted on May 13, 2012):
Hi I like the flyrise reels so much I bought me another one for my 8 wt rod I have been rough on these reels and I have landed some big fish with them sure I like to have the evolution lt over the flyrise. But if you are on a budget you need these reels they perform and have same drag as the evolution lt! There is nothing that compares to it in its price range! Also a lot of people say if u drop a cast aluminum reel it is all over with. Well I am here to tell u I have dropped fell in the river with it and mine and it looks and performs good as new! Also backed by Ross's lifetime warranty!
