    Another great click and pawl reel is the Redington CT series. They are discontinued now but a great reel none the less

    Sorry, you are incorrect. The lightweight are already being sent overseas to be outsourced, verified by Cortland. Reels should drop in price from $500 to around $250 -$300. Didnt ask about the Bougle and Cascapedia.

    British Made Reels? I am quite sure the name was the British Fly Reel Company, who was in the UK but are now in the Orient. They are owned by Rivendell I believe.

    Here's an update on the two Lightweights I noted several days ago:

    The Princess with 3 spools sold for the opening bid amount of $275. IMHO the single bidder got a deal.

    The smaller Flyweight with 2 spools ended up going for $349, $100 more than the initial bid. A bit steep for my money, but an indication as to how much value the market places on these sweet, trout-sized reel.

    Thanks for the correction Stan. I look forward to the price drop.

    I sure would like to see the Bougle come back down to earth. If they would return the Bougle to the MarkIV configuration and drop the price back toward affordability for the unwashed masses, I would be very tempted to make my first purchase of a new off-the-shelf reel in many years.

    iagree IMHO the British Racing Green frame color of the Mk Vs and VIs is much less attractive than the silver Mk IVs and earlier.

    However, the person who I got my Mk V from said its drag mechanism was redesigned to offer greater pressure over a wider range. I haven't had a chance to compare it with a Mk IV, but it feels much superior to that on my Marquis and JLH Ultralights.
