I have no personal experience with Orvis reels, but Yellowstone Angler recently did a reel comparison and rated the 5 wt Hydros SL II lower than the 5 wt Orvis Access reel. In passing, they did note that they consider the 8 wt Hydros SL II a best buy in that weight class. You can read about the 5 wt test at the link below, which includes the reference to the 8 wt. And you can search their website for the write up on that reel. You can draw your own conclusions, or not, from their write ups and methodology.
