Don't worry man. I think the battenkill is the most solid reel for the price. Get one. I've got a 5/6 for the salt water and nice trout and a 3/4 for my 3wt. rod. I've had no problem with it tearing my line and have had my 5/6 for about 5 years. I've recommended them to all of my friends and none of them have ever had a problem with it. They all swear by them. There's no other reel that will be that sturdy for $98. Maybe you should try the battenkill large arbor. Never used it but it looks sweet. But, don't buy an orvis rod! :COOK
