The new CR reel, built to Cabela’s specs by Fin-Nor, offers high-end machining at a relatively moderate price. It’s carved from bar-stock aluminum, perforated to reduce weight and anodized to beat corrosion. Plus, the reel’s oversized cork disc drag is impregnated with Teflon and is infinitely adjustable to accommodate the lightest tippets. A one-way clutch bearing ensures instant drag engagement. For line weights 4/5, 6/7, 8/9 and 10-plus. ($199 to $239.95; 800-237-4444)
