These reels from the relatively new company, 3-Tand, have really impressed us. They got our attention after getting a "Best in Show" Award at the 2014 iCast showcase. Since then we've tried them out, tested them in a shootout, and have come to appreciate the lightweight, stunning looks, and effective drag. We've included several models in our best buy fly fishing outfits because of its great bang for your buck and saltwater capabilities. In sizes that fit line weights between 2 and 8 wt. there is an offering out there for everyone, making it easier and more cost effective than ever to get into a quality sealed drag reel that will protect your lightest of tippet and stop the most stubborn of fish.
