Lots, and lots of metal reels. And aluminum is the metal, but no use spending more money than you need to if the guy has a simple need for the reel...but he won't tell us that so the question is useless.

sorry clinchknot it didn't post computers been slow lately. i like the drag setup of fly reels for slammer ice fishing tip-up so that the fish can run with slight tension after hook is set instead of free lining or spin reel drag. i also am not a huge fan of the drag setups on the ice fishing ones right now.
