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

Hi Mike,

Your requirement for a $300, light weight, big fish reel is not easy to accomplish. Here are a few to consider.

Frank

The Nautilus Feather Weight+ is a good choice but you will have to use Gel Spun backing to use a 9wt line. It is not big enough for a 10wt. Price is $350.

The Orvis Battenkill Big Game will hold a 9wt line and plenty of backing. Price is $250.

The Galvan T10 is a very good reel but is more money. Price $450

The Teton 8-10 is a very good reel for the price. Teton is closed right now but they are looking for a buyer. If you call the factory you might get a good deal. Other dealers still have them in stock. The problem is there may not be any factory support.
