Orvis' new Mirage reels give anglers a lightweight design machined from solid-aluminum bar stock, a sealed drag capable of generating more than 15 pounds of pressure and true large-arbor performance - at a price that is hundreds of dollars less than other reels. The Mirage series was developed for larger fish and is offered in four models designed for 7- to 15-weight lines. The reels' maintenance-free floating carbon-disc drag system has been in development for two years, and Orvis says the carbon plates' keyed edges cannot warp or round off, ensuring stability and security. MSRP ranges from $425 to $495. www.orvis.com
