Wal-Mart sells the Orvis Green Mountain Fly rod combo for $119.95. That comes with a balanced large arbor reel, although it doesn't LOOK like the new fancy large arbors, IT IS a large arbor reel, equipped with (already wound on) backing, floating 6wt wf line, leader on a 9' med flex 6wt rod. Got one on sale yesterday for $49. For Large Arbor equipped reel and rod, that is a good deal to me. $70 off. Just FYI
