  1. Does anyone have any input that may help me pick between a Scientific Angler Mastery 8/9 or an Orvis DXR 7/8 to go on a Sage 890-3SP? Are either of these good reels? I found them on sale. Thank you
  2. i doint have a anser for u but i did see a denis dikson info page on reals
  3. Both are very good reels; you can't lose with either. I believe the SA is a little lighter and a little less expensive, but we're only talking a little bit in each of these areas. The SA has quite a bit more drag adjustment, if I recall correctly, for fine tuning. Both companies will be around for a long time. Both products are lifetime products.

    If I were going to buy the SA, I'd be all over buying a couple of spools, too, while they are available and cheap. It might be a little more difficult to tract down a DXR spool.
