Default Re: Fly Reel for a 9wt/10wt

I bought a Lamson Velocity 3.5 for a new seven weight rod. For heavy weight fish I use an Orvis Odyssey IV it is real heavy but holds 300 yards of 36lb. micron backing and a DT 9wt..

The drag is outstanding and I ignore the weight. Probably not what you want but those Lamson's come in a 4.0 which is 4.25" diameter I think. It'll hold some line and the drag seems good. If you want one under 300 better check the Bay (eBay) for one. That's where I bought the 3.5 for $195.

Good Luck
