What do fly fisherman think of Teton Fly Reels? Here is what they are saying:
From New York:
"This one is a beauty! I've fished with it for 2 years pretty much on a daily basis except for the winter months.
I really like the simplicity of it - no bearings but a large stainless steel bushing. The fit and finish of this reel is perfect. I fish mostly in the Delaware river and local reservoirs."
From Northern California:
"One word to describe this reel would be "solid". Its very light, about as light as a Ross Evolution, but looks like something that could take an accidental hit. They are a bit off about the capacity of line that could be put on there even with a weight forward I got about 75-80 yds of backing on there. Thats plenty though. The clicker is pretty loud, but thats about it. I love the simplicity of its design and the fact that I didnt have to pay $300 to buy a "solid" reel. Its a beautiful reel all in all!"
"I have used Teton's for more than 10 years in sizes 3-11 on species ranging from trout, salmon, albacore and saltwater inshore species. I also have Nautilus, Ross and several others, but the Teton reels are sturdy, smooth and an exceptional value."
From North Carolina:
"These are the best reels I have used. I have owned Abel and Ross Reels and still prefer Teton. My reels have been fished hard and still remain smooth and maintenance free."
"These are great reels. Well made and reasonably priced. Made in the U.S.A. Smooth drag. I have a 6wt and a 10wt and love them both. I plan on getting a 4wt rod and will use a Teton reel on it also. I have other reels that I have paid more for but like the Tetons better."
