Default Re: Bamboo rod reel

To me it depends a lot on the Bamboo rod. If it is a heirloom quality rod of your lifetime, spend the extra money and put a true classic reel on it. A Hardy Lightweight, Bougle, Cascapedia or old Perfect if you can find one for the right price. Also check out Peerless, Bradley, Bellinger, and if you make a lot more money then me a Bogdon. The true classic reels are built to last forever and really compliment a fine trout rod. All of my trout reels are click drag.

If your buying a budget bamboo to play around with a Medalist would or an old JW Young would be a nice choice

Note: I work for Cortland Hardy
