First, Merry Christmas to all My family had Christmas this evening and I was suprised with a BassPro giftcard. My thoughts immediately turned to a fly reel. Unfortunately, Bass Pro's selection of fly reels, well, sucks. I see two possibilities Bass Pro offers-1. Orvis Battenkill Bar Stock and 2. Sage 1880 Large Arbor. I'm leaning towards the Orvis only because I do not understand how Sage's "tripod graphite drag" system works. Any thoughts? I don't have to buy from BassPro-I just thought it would be nice to take advantage of the giftcard.
