    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't be Happier! Today I spent a long session on the Orvis, Vermont casting pond. The Access II reel was a perfect fit for the rod I choose. The drag on the Access reels are very smooth with fine and subtle adjustments possible. The quality of craftsmanship and material that goes into this reel is first rate. The result is a solid and strong precision instrument. For this purchase, I choose the titanium color - looks killer with my new rod. This is the 4th Access reel that I now own and I couldn't be happier with the quality and performance.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't Get Enough I now own two of these great reels. The Access I is mounted on my Superfine Carbon 6' 6" rod for a 3 weight line. The reel balances perfectly with this rod and feels terrific. I especially like the drag system. I have never cared for the click ... reels. I like to most often play my fish from the reel and want a smooth and quiet drag. This drag works perfectly. The mid arbor size picks up the line quickly when I am trying to get to my reel with a fish on. The drag tension adjustment is easy to use and has a great range of adjustment. I chose the titanium color for this reel. It's looks fantastic!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Access Mid-Arbor 1 If you buy one reel from Orvis you will never want to change. Very high quality product for, very good price. Access Mid-Arbor 1 It is very clever reel. There are some days where you want to pick up a very light fly fishing gear. Access Mid-Arbor 1 It is a very good choice
