I only consider multipliers as true fly reels. But if you want to fish in the same engineering time frame as Dame Juliana Berners that is fine with me. I have a $42 Martin 72 3:1 multiplier with star drag, and a Hardy 1.7:1 multiplier which is a $2500 reel. Now I still want a big game type multiplier, and maybe the Albright 2.2 might fit the bill.
