Just an FYI...Although Jack passed away last year, Charlton reels are still manufactured and assembled right here in Washington. http://www.makoreels.com/index.html Stunning, incredibly reliable reels. Edco, Inc., owner of Solitude reels, does a lot of the CNC work. A lot of the drag system design in Solitude reels came from Jack's insight and assistance. The WWL Vanquish that Anil mentions is an absolutely awesome reel. I love nice fly reels. Super great information and suggestions here.
