      Good reels / spools - 6/3/2014
      By: from Newcastle upon Tyne

      Excellent reels, light and very smooth disc drag, not available anymore so if you need a spare spool get them while you can especially while at the reduced price.

      excelent purchase - 2/8/2014
      By: from Beauly Inverness Scotland

      as with all my 0rvis fishing equipement the spare spool purchased from you is of very good quality. I purchased my first Orvis rod thirty years ago and would never use anything else. I think Orvis fishing tackle is the best on the market today and would recommend it to anyone
