ORVIS CLEARWATER LARGE ARBOR IV REEL : 7-9WT
Orvis Clearwater Fly Reels may be the best performance value
in the fly fishhing world. Featuring a powerful, smooth drag
system and a new, stronger and lighter frame, the new Orvis Clearwater
is tough and attractive, in a lightweigth reel to perfectly balance
modern fly rods. Two years in design and development delivers with a
powerful inline, Rulon to stainless, stacked disc drag that can hold its
own with high-performance machined reels. The New Orvis Clearwater Fly
Reel has the great classic look of a fully machined reel, and more
importantly, has the guts of a much higher-priced fly reel.
converted to either left- or right-hand retrieve, the Orvis Clearwater IV Fly Reel has a positive click drag knob for consistent settings every
time. Whether you're looking for your first large arbor, fishing on a
budget, or want a spare reel or two in the bag, the new Orvis Clearwater
Large Arbor IV Fly Reel can handle anything a machined reel can and
completely changes the game in die cast reels. A perfect reel to use as a
backup rod or if you are looking for an affordable reel with an
excellent drag system.

The reel is ok for the money. When I took a photo of a fish I submerged it into the river. The ball bearing in the interior became completely rusty. Kudos to Orvis for quickly replacing it for free

I bought this about a year ago and it was a great purchase. It’s my second Orvis reel, the first one has been great and still going for over 15 years, but this on is even better.

This is a well made, affordable reel! I have absolutely loved it for my first decent reel!

Great reel for the money. Not the best reel out there obviously, but definitely a great low price option.

Be careful banging this reel on rocks. It shows wear very easily.

This reel is probably all that is realistically needed for 99% of freshwater applications. Even larger great lakes "Steelhead" or upper Midwest Lake Trout can be handled with ease on these reels. Orvis stands by their stuff too. You'll get bored of it before you absolutely need something higher end.

My second one. Can't beat the price. So far the reel has prevailed against sockeye salmon in the strong currents of the lower Kenai River. Drag is smooth.

Picked this up as a Christmas present and as usual with Orvis products it is excellent. Probably the best reel for the dollar in my opinion. Come loaded with Clearwater line and backing. Nice smooth drag and has lots of stopping power.
