Been looking at one of those automatics for some time can you perhaps give another review after you have give it a try plz.I have had several ordes come through that were ordered over their New Years break. the promise of being surprised by the gifts.. well order a Blackstar 9´ 4 weight rod.. arrived with no gifts! ordered an automatic reel and 2 4 weight lines and some tying stuff.. reel arrived broken and without the lines (the parcel was damaged so this may well have happened en route). give Maxcatch credit.. I told them and they posted a new reel and the missing lines (arrived yesterday).
The automatic reel looks good and is lighter than the vivarelli.
I like the avid and Toro reels. Both light and the drags wok well. Before finding maxcatch I had taken a shining to Lamson reels and had bought 3.. now I am actually liking the above 2 more.Has Maxcatch got any decent fly reels?
Its just I leant my brother my fly rod ''V-Top'' and reel piscifun sword and he loved them both preferable under £60 for a reel.
To be honest I dont know. I will actually lend the maxcatch reel to a friend who fishes quite a bit and has a vivarelli. He can then tell me what he thinks and compare it to the vivarelliJust one question does the maxcatch auto drag work in a similar way to the vivarelli ?
Well glad I didn’t run a book as my order arrived today! That’s exactly two weeks from order and twelve days from despatch. Well done maxcatch so far so good. Initial impressions look good quality wise and may give it a trial tomorrow on my local stream. The Rod will be paired with a small battenkill reel so will do a review in due course. I have really bought it as a back up to my Orvis superfine 7’6” 4# and didn’t want another expensive Orvis Rod sat in the cupboard most of the time unused. The avid reel is for my 5# Rod and it oozes quality. A few freebies also thrown in. We will see but maybe not my last order from maxcatch........My first order placed with maxcatch 10 minutes ago. Rod, Reel and silicone fly box for £64. Curiosity has got the better of me after all the positive reviews!
let’s see when it arrives, maybe ought to run a book?
