Summary:
This reel exhibits all the characteristics of what you would want in a fly reel. Smooth drag, great looks and flawless performance. I took the leap and purchased one after reading all the great reviews on this web page. I was NOT dissapointed.

Customer Service:
Have not had to use them.

Summary:
This is the best reel for the money as far as I am concerned. It will always be in the shadow of my San Miguel, but I will never part with this reel.

Customer Service:
Never needed customer service.

Summary:
This reel is probably one of the best values on the market. The craftsmanship really is top-notch, and the reel performs without a hitch. I have the OB-5 on a 6-weight Sage, and it is great. The best part about the reel, aside from the price to performance ratio, is the drag. I have never used a reel with as versatile a drag as this reel. I have tried the Orvis Battenkill Large Arbor, and it doesn't even come close in quality or performance. They are separated in price by about $35, but there really is no comparison between the two reels.

Customer Service:
Haven''''t had any need to use it

Summary:
This really is one of the best reels on the market, both for function and value. This reel has the smoothest running drag that i have ever felt, with a great drag range and easy adjustment. The reel is sturdy and looks like it will last as long as i will. Couldn't be happier with my purchase.

Customer Service:
Haven''t had to use it yet.
