I'm a newbie to the sport and the forum. Be gentle
I'm trying to decide between a Lamson Konic 2 and an Allen Trout Reel for a 5 wt rod (primarily trout fishing).
Other Reels I considered but am not as excited about are the Loomis Venture, Sage 1850, and Orvis BBS.
My budget is about $125ish and I will likely be pairing this reel with an Echo Carbon.
Ideas or recommendations? Thanks!
