Scientific Anglers decided that it was time it came out with a large-arbor reel, and the result is the Concept 2M. What makes these reels appealing is that they’re being introduced at the rock-bottom price of $64.95. Don’t let the low price tag fool you; these reels are competitive in quality with more expensive models. The two reels being offered are Model 56LA for 5/6 lines and Model 79LA for 7-, 8-, and 9-weight lines. Both have compression-type disc drags and are made from a lightweight polymer graphite. Going from right-to-left-handed retrieve with these reels is as simple as flipping a switch. ($64.95; 800-525-6290)
