The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

The Redington Behemoth is a great reel for fly anglers look for a reel that wont break the bank, but still need a reel with superb drag power. The carbon fiber drag system is as good as it gets in this price range of fly reels. The drag knob is also over sized and very easy to turn in situations where drag power needs to be adjusted quickly. The reel handle is padded and very nice to grab ahold of. The large arbor spool allows for very quick fly line pick up but its also v-shaped. Meaning you need more backing to fill the reel up and it also allows for some minimal line stacking. The reel is also die-cast aluminum construction and is susceptible to scratching and dings. This reel is also just a tad heavier in hand than other reels the same size and in this class. Overall the Redington Behemoth is a great reel that I would recommend to any fly angler that doesn’t want to break the bank but still needs a reel with great stopping power.

Ideal for
  • Top of class drag system
  • Top of the line reel handle
  • Quick fly line pickup
Not ideal for
  • A little heavier than most reels in the class
  • V-Shaped spool can cause line stacking
  • Die-Cast build isn’t the most durable construction

The Redington Behemoth Fly Reel is a large arbor disc drag fly reel that fly anglers of all skill levels would use. Made from die cast aluminum, this is a lightweight and strong reel. Available in five sizes, this reel will cover fly rod weights 3-13.

Key Features:

  • Large Arbor Spool – This spool size aids in rapid fly line pick up on retrieval and decreases fly line memory and coiling.
  • Carbon Disc Drag – The carbon disc drag provides stopping power that will handle large fish.
  • Lifetime Warranty – The manufacturer provides a lifetime warranty for this reel.

Matt was so easy to work with. He answered all my questions and there were many. He offered detailed explanations for his recommendations and sold me exactly what I needed, nothing more and nothing less. He also gave me valuable information regarding the sport of fly fishing and not just the current equipment I was seeking to buy. It was an amazing experience. Thanks Matt!

Rylyn found a sale for the Douglas Sky G rod and recommended it. He said that this was the best rod in the market and so I bought it. We paired it with monic Trout Master fly line. I was not disappointed at all! The rod feels intuitive and natural to cast. I could cast more accurately and a longer distance than I ever did with my previous rod.

I recently purchased a pair of waders through Curated with Stefan’s help. They were very helpful and able to get me exactly what I was looking. Items were perfect for my price range and the days by the streams/lakes that I will spend my time at. I enjoy researching products on my own, and was worried Curated might take the fun out of things, but this service is great for people like me also. Whether you have an idea of what you want, or are just getting started looking I would highly recommend Curated, and Stefan!

Found a great deal on Curated for a Daiwa fishing pole. My sales representative, Josh, was very helpful in answering questions before the order. Even more impressive was how he and Curated responded when the rod was delivered broken (not their fault). They immediately helped guide me through the return process which provided me the confidence that this would be resolved without issue. New rod is on the way and I have already ordered a second one!
