The Orvis Access Mid Arbor Fly Reel takes the mid-arbor concept to a new level of performance, and does it at a price that makes it easy to own! Built of machined 6061 aircraft bar stock with a sealed carbon/stainless-steel drag, it fishes like a much pricier reel. You get all the benefits of a large arbor, faster retrieve, less coiling, but at a more manageable size. Five sizes run the gamut of fly quarry. Large handle; positive drag click system. Orvis Access Mid Arbor Fly Reel spare spools sold separately and can be found through item search for sku number 1791961.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pchbluejeans Good reel
I paired this reel with the Orvis Access 907-4 rod. The setup is super light. This reel is thin, balance and sitting almost exactly inline with the rod.
The drag is tightly sealed and saltwater proof as well. It doesn't have the retrieve like the large arbor reels, but it is fine for me.
If I can change one thing about this reel is probably clicker. But you won't hear it so much once you are in the water.

I have this real in various sizes on my 4wt, 6wt, and 8wt. They are great reels that house a "enclosed drag system" that never needs lubricating. Spare spools are affordable and easy to come by. Once again for the money these Access Reels bring a lot to the table.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Matri Orvis does it again!
Being from VT, I always look into new Orvis gear as I've just started getting into Fly Fishing. The drag is superb and is sealed which is a big relief. The mid arbor design isn't over bulky like the large arbors but still picks up line quicker than others. Also, I never need to worry about backing, my 7-9 wt holds over 200 yards of backing.
Only negative thing I can think of is the handle, but the plastic/rubber composite material seems to be the norm nowadays.
