Great reel. Great drag system seems bullet proof, smooth as butter.
My RX 2 is high end reel. I know that Bauer now have newly designed reel (RVR model) but wanted this classic to match my Winston Pure.
Reel is machined to perfection with high tolerances. Shop does something like 5 axis machining, and you have to hold this reel in your hands to really appreciate it and understand what that means.
I have extra spool for it. One spool have Small Creek line 4 WFW and second will soon have Airflo DT in 4wt.
These are just a classic, no non-sense, yet technically flawless reel. Burly, durable, and aesthetically pleasing. I will be adding even more to my lineup this season.
I put these reels through the wringer. They get hundreds of days a year on the water and can take some abuse from my clients. They are light, smooth, quiet and beautiful. The green and black looks amazing on a Winston rod.
I have these reels in size 3 and 4 and couldn’t be happier with them, they pair flawlessly with my Winston rods and have seen a lot of use with zero issues. Bauer is my first and only choice in fly reels, give ‘em a shot, they won’t disappoint!
