Ok....large can of worms but tell me what are your favorite $300-500 fly reels? My best is currently an Loop Evotec, which is light and super nice. I bought my daughter a Ross Evolution LT, which seems sweet, but haven't tried it out yet. I want to have my new reel balance nicely on an Axiom II 8wt. Mainly a rod for the TX coast when it's too windy for my TFO Mangrove 7wt (better presentation, but slower).
