Bought this for a 7wt. This reel is everything you need, everything you could want. As others have said, the drag is bomb-proof, the casing is light, with solid construction, and it looks good!
I love the look, fit and finish of this reel. The drag is bomb-proof just like all the Lamson reel. The weight is a perfect match for my Echo 7wt. Lookout fish!
Excellent product. Smooth as silk. Top quality!
My Orvis Hydros busted on a saltwater outing (little pissed at Orvis--only 5 month old reel)--- I needed a solid reel quickly but budget minded-- so I went with Remix -7+ for Striper fishing. The reel was solid-- caught one (mid-size) first time out and the drag work perfectly. I paired it with a Fenwick Salt rod 8wt-- happy with the balance and feel. Thinking of adding some spools for other line as well. Very Happy. Lamson folks got the reel out to me in 3 days from my order.
