As I've said before, there's a need for an entry-level fly reel of spey line capacity. The Cortland Magnum has been discontinued. The largest Medalist works for smaller spey lines; but something with bigger capacity is needed. I may have found the answer. There is a Korean-made, graphite series of fly reels, marketed here as the Crystal River Cahill. I recently bought the largest one, the CR-0008, on eBay for $3 and change! Others have sold there for similar price. FWIW, the list price is $29.99, and it's listed from various eBay stores from $9.99 to $24.95. At 9.2 ounces, it has rim control, a stylish face plate, and a disc drag that is strong at max. setting. I test-filled mine with an XLT 8/9 and sufficient gellspun backing. Only time will tell whether this reel is a misbegotten Third World POS, or the biggest bargain since Herter's going-out-of-business sale.
