I stopped in recently at my local Orvis shop, and noticed this great looking new reel, the Hydros SL. By the numbers, it seems like a great value. Though it was ported extensively, the frame seemed solid and had less flex than other comparably lightweight reels I've seen in size and weight (fora light salty/heavy fresh setup). It's drag is purportedly sealed.

Any perspectives, experiences, or other comments about it?

Thank you in advance for your comments!
