I have two Orvis BBS reels,a BBS IV (9wt) and a BBS V(8wt),thinking that they would be a nice reel for flyfishing the salt, but I've yet to see anyone using these reels in any magazines or on telly. It seems they are always using Billy Pate, Sage,Able,etc., but no Orvis BBS type reels. Did I make an expensive mistake in buying these reels? Are the junk,is the large arbor for line recovery speed a bigger factor than I figured or did I miss something else in my research before buying them? I was trying to keep the initial cost down a bit as I had absolutely no fly gear and wasn't sure if I'd get serious with the long rod, but now there is always a flyrod setup in the buggy or on the boat. I bought on the reputation of the Orvis name thinking how wrong could I go.I am now in the position where I could upgrade a step or two to better reels if it is warranted. Any comments would be appreciated.
