Bauer reels and spools are masterpieces!
I have now two spare spools for my RX 2 and RX 4. I have so many options and interests how to fish (lakes, dries, single hand OPST). It is simply so difficult to just switch quickly without spare spools. New Airflo DT lines, OPST Commando Groove, OPST Commando Smooth ...) Spare spools are big part of my fishing.
It had been a while sense I handled a Bauer Reel. As a hi end Fly Rod maker and dealer of fine tackle, my customers demand the very best and there is little forgiveness if they feel contrary to what they have been sold. I had several request for Bauer reel so I called up the manufacture to place an order.
When I opened the box and took out the Bauer reel and extra spool, my face went form a some what proceed with caution to a big wide grin. I was delighted. This reel had the look and feel of the type of quality that will bring a smile to any discriminating gear junkie! I am very pleased both with the quality of the reel and the service of the Bauer team.
Thanks very much for the review Kerry! We love your rods as well and tough to beat a Burkheimer x Bauer match up!
