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

Thanks for all the help. I pulled the trigger on the Cortland Retro. The sealed drag on the Konic is overkill for trout, and I like the weight on the Cortland better. The Allen reels didn't strike my fancy and delayed shipping got in the way of my upcoming trip.

The only concern I have is that I went with the #2 Retro. A bit larger, but I like the idea of it being usable on a 5wt down the road. The #2 was still much lighter than my cheap flystart 1. So I figured it would be ok, balance wise?
