A bonny reel, but I think I might give it a miss at that price.  :lol:

It's probably made in China for a tenner.  :lol:

The Orvis annual accounts will show that advertising is 40% of annual expenditure.
That said, I have a rod and five reels from them !

It looks like a cheap copy of a Maxcatch.

I will say that Orvis gear is good. I have a pair of Orvis wading boots that I have used for years AND survived a trip to NZ.

Until you have been to NZ you can't even begin to understand what the phrase "hard on boots" means  :lol:

I have (at least!) Orvis rods, reels, lines, waders and wading boots plus a fair few clothing items. Very happy with them all. The only Orvis item I dislike is their tippet material.
I recently damaged one of their clip-on watches that I was given as a present years ago. I asked about a repair but was sent a new one :D.
I tend to buy when I get a voucher or one of their special offers.
