If you're ready to invest in a pricier all-around set up that you can target many types of fish with, try pairing this Tibor Signature Series 5/6 weight with a Scott Radian 5/6 weight ($795) rod. The reviews for this reel are stellar, and putting any amazing rod with it will do you good. Before you invest in this reel, though, you should check out some reviews and see if it matches the features that you care about most. ---------------------------------------------------- From Fly, Rod, Reel (talking about the 5/6 weight): * sealed-cork drag system * all-around tough design and construction * heavily ported to make more lightweight * really smooth drag system * nice design (it looks cool!)

The everglades is a better choice.

@mcgraffy @happyrock Can't say I disagree, but you know you're getting much higher quality when you pay that price!
Pretty or not, like @mcgraffy said this is wayyyyy more than I'd spend on a reel at this time!
Looks like a fun rod to use! Also way out of my price range, though!
