Redington CD 9/10, silver. I bought three of these to use as a boat reel for my 6 and 7 weight rods, and never got around to using it. This one is unused. It's dimensions and weight are nearly identical to my Bauer M3 reel, which to me is a 6-7 reel (small 8). I feel Redington tends to overstate the line size of its reels; it's no 9/10, but this reel is a great fit for a salty 6 or 7 weight or a small spey reel. From the web:

"Redington's CD series reels have features often only available in more expensive reels. The CD is made of anodized machined 6061 barstock aluminum, and is a "mid arbor" style (between a regular arbor and a large arbor reel). The mid arbor configuration allows the benefits of large arbor reels, but offers a little more backing capacity than similarly sized large arbor reels. The "CD" stands for its center drag mechanism that includes a cork drag washer. This reel was made in the same plant as the equally venerable, and more expensive, Orvis Mid Arbor. The spools even interchange. Features are:
  • Diameter: 3-¾"
  • Width: 1-3/8"
  • Weight: 7 oz.
  • Mid-arbor design
  • Anodized, machined aluminum
  • Ceramic coated bearings for smoothness, corrosion resistance, and longevity
  • Cork on teflon disk drag
  • Counter balanced spool
  • Large rubber spool handle
  • Large, easy to grip drag knob
  • Koyo on-way clutch bearing
  • Easy left/right retrive conversion
  • Quick release spool
The CD reels come with a limited lifetime manufacturer's warranty. "

New, with factory padded cordura reel case. Heck, just the reel case would be $15!

Only $70! Less expensive than a fly line and will last a whole lot longer...
