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. February 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by BKATZ Great Real 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. March 26, 2012
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. December 27, 2011

Details:I notice that the 38-353-440-00 is supposed to carry 5 line weights. I have a 7wt and plan on picking up a 5 and a 9. With a bunch of spools will this reel do the trick without too much compromise?

A:A 7 with minimal backing MAYBE, but definitely not a 9. A 9 wt line will take up all the backing space on the spool. Get the reel meant for a 7 wt and you'll be able to use a 7 and a 9. Make sure you get gel-spun backing for the spool with 9 wt line since its thinner and you'll have more room.

A:I always buy a reel size a class bigger than my intended line of use so I can spool them in various line sizes.
For your purpose, the Access IV is good for 7-9wt. and I spooled my IV with 5wt line and it works just fine. And the IV is still light enough of reel for 5wt rod.
