The Curated Take
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.
