I bought a Evotec G4 from their outlet, good reel, think its 35% off. Any of the FW series would be a good fit, especially the 5-7.No I haven't but I will. Did you buy from loop direct?

I know this suggestion does not fit your criteria, but anytime someone asks for a trout reel for say a #4-6 rod I have to nominate the Danielsson Dryfly, its got so much soul and if there ever was a trout reel for traditional dry fly fishing it is it. Second hand they go for around 100 quid. Sorry to add to your confusion!
Thanks Doc that sounds like a great reel for using in saltwater as you say but also more generally by the sounds of it too!I love my Vosseler's (DC4) and S3's for salmon - BUT - I am mightily impressed with the Airflo Airtec reels - sealed drag - bought one for sea Loch fishing - semi sacrificial so I didn't knacker my good reels - but in the end is a belter and for about £30 quid is good value. Not sure if they still make them - but if you can get one, it's a great reel
Sounds like a brilliant reel but it would take a lot of getting used to since it doesn't have the clicker sound.At that price point Okuma helios would be my recommendation : machined Aluminium, multiple disc drag, beautiful and reasonably light, very sturdy
But no clicker sound though!
Ahaha it has it s advantages though: yesterday I wanted to clean a line on my old hardy perfect, I took the reel and started to pull the line routinely: the sound woke up my little baby and I ended up in big trouble with his mom!!!! Wouldn’t have happened with the silent Helios!Sounds like a brilliant reel but it would take a lot of getting used to since it doesn't have the clicker sound.
Was that heading north on the a815?I had the Marquis 6 multiplier many moons ago.
Left it on the roof of the car outside the Coylet on Loch Eck while tackling up one morning.
It wasn’t there when we came back in the evening.
Neither was the Marquis 10 that I’d left on the roof beside it.
