The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

The Redington Behemoth fly reel is all you could ask for an more when looking for a powerful reel that wont break the bank. It’s carbon fiber drag system is tops in this price range and has massive stopping power. The drag knob is also oversized and is easy to turn on the fly in situations where the drag needs adjustment quickly. This reel has an easy on the eye design that just looks great on any rod and the reel has a wide variety of color option. The reel is a die cast aluminum reel and is susceptible to dings and scratching. It also has little heavier in hand feel but that weight also helps make the reel feel better on a lot of rods. The spool of the reel is really wide and does allow some minimal line stacking and tangling on occasions. I’d recommend the Redington behemoth to any fly fishermen looking for a reel they don’t need to use all the time but will still put huge stopping power on larger fish.

Ideal for
  • Best in class drag power
  • Eye catching design with twin molded soft touch reel handle
  • Large drag knob for quick and easy adjustment
Not ideal for
  • Die cast construction is susceptible to dings
  • Wide spool allows line stacking and tangling
  • Leans towards the heavier side in its class

The Redington Behemoth Series Fly Reel is a large-arbor fly reel that fly fishermen of all skill levels would use. The die cast aluminum body provides for a strong lightweight reel. The carbon fiber drag system allows for smooth functioning when fighting fish. Available in five different models, this reel covers fly rod weights of 4wt - 12wt. This reel features a lifetime warranty. Key Features:

  • Oversized Drag Knob – The oversized drag knob allows for ergonomic adjustments to the drag.
  • Deep V Spool – The deep V on the spool allows for increased backing capacity.
  • Nylon Reel Case – The nylon reel case provides a safe way to store the reel when not in use.

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!
