I don't think anyone that has seen the new Redington Rise Reels would argue that they are going to be a big hit. Introduced for 2017, the Redington Rise reels feature machined, anodized aluminum construction, an ultra-large arbor design, a lightweight and quality feel and sound, and a beautiful, eye-catching appearance. The 5/6 size is less than $200 and the Rise reels continue their tradition of incredible value in a machined aluminum reel.
Here is what Redington has to say about their new Rise reels:
The all new RISE continues our ongoing quest to think beyond the bounds of traditional reel designs. It features a u-shaped large-arbor and a compact carbon fiber drag system that offers smooth fish stopping torque. Lightweight design shows through in the modern aesthetic of the RISE, and thoughtful details like twin molded soft-tough handles and oversized drag knob help the reel perform in the hands of any angler.
