Default Re: upgrading my 4wt reel, Lamson Konic or Cortland Retro?

I have handled the Konic and I own and frequently use a Cortland Retro I. The Konic seems a lot heavier and bulkier, and even a bit on the ugly side in my eyes, but it does have a good drag that can take a beating. The Retro is very light, simple, and good sounding/looking. I have put the Retro through hell bushwhacking through small creeks and landing unexpected 20 inch rainbows on it and it still looks almost as good as it did new. I would definitely go with the Retro since you like the looks.
