Editor Note: I have owned and fished an M60 3/4 wt fly reel since Jan 2007 on a 7.5 ft 4wt Fish Creek fly rod. The reel balances out the rod nicely. I have found this to be an excellent reel for the money. It works great for the smaller streams I love to fish. My M60 has helped to land many fish over the last 3 years. The reel has held up well and shows no appreciable wear and tear. I expect to get many more years of service from this reel.
