Fin-ite II Fly Reel by Fin-Nor
by J. Castwell
If you are anything like me, when you look over a fly reel, you like to take
a good close look at all the parts, including taking it apart. I hope this review
will give you that look at the new Fin-ite II fly reel by Fin-Nor. Most, if not
all of the following pictures are self-explanatory, (and some quite magnified)
but if you use your mouse on each there will be some additional information.
I own and have used the reel for silver salmon and have had no problems. It
is extremely smooth, light in weight, has a one-way clutch, great looking and
a delight to use in all ways.|
But that is of course only my personal opinion. I
did no tests of any mechanical, hardness or other scientific type. I looked at it,
fiddled with the drag, flopped over the 'one-way' clutch making it function for
left-hand retrieve and loaded it with backing and fly line and went fishing.
I have mentioned in one of my previous Castwell columns
A New Reel Story,
a person should buy a reel with his heart, not just his head (make that his wallet).
The pride of ownership and the perfect performance for my intentions make me
say this is the smoothest, nicest and best fly reel I have ever used or owned.|
There may be better reels on the market, or may be in the future. This reel
performs and fills my needs perfectly at this time, and no new reels by any
other manufacturer will cause this reel to malfunction. It does what it does,
period. It is my favorite saltwater reel. ~ JC
