Joseph Bartholomew
Orvis Super Strong Tippet Spool - 30m
"Good Tippet"

Good tippet, knot strength isn't the best, but still not bad

Dale Martens
Orvis Hydros Large Arbor Fly Reel
"Everything you'd want in a saltwater reel..."

I have a V mounted on a 10 weight saltwater rod. The drag is smooth and strong - I've used it for tarpon and also roosters from the beach. (Although I never actually hooked up to a rooster.) Because the drag is sealed, I never worry about salt spray or sand on the beach. I'd say this reel is almost at the same level as a Ross Momentum, but a lot cheaper.
