Cheeky Stuff

A new neighbor has a Cheeky fly reel that I tried out. It seem to be well constructed and very smooth operating. I've never heard of the company or seen their products around. But then, I'm middle-aged and admittedly outdated. Anyone have their reels and what do you think of them?

There's no way I'd ever use one of the reels because it somehow causes your rod to dissolve!! :D
For what it's worth, I've never used one...but to my knowledge, they're Asian import reels...and for the price you can get an equivalent US made reel that's also a top-tier performer...so even if they're as good as other reels at their price point, I'm going to be far more inclined to go with a US built one.

I'm by no means a "buy 'Murican no matter what" type, but, all else being equal, I expect the Asian imports to compete on price, with a possible tradeoff in quality. Even if quality is equal, I expect a price break.
The reason I like Hardy reels. Incredible quality at a mid range price.
