    Does anyone here use an Alvey reel for catfishing? They can cast further than any reel i have ever seen.

    I gotta say I never heard of them, but I checked them out online. They are some interesting looking reels, kind of put you in mind of fly reels. This despite the different models they have.

    I have never heard of them until now. They are cool looking. Looks like a fly reel on steriods. I would like to throw one

    They've been around for years. My dad got 3 of them back in 1969. He recently gave me one of them. They are nice. They have a number of different models including one with star drag on it.
