Re: J. W. Young Reels
I have a JW Young Landex reel. It's an antireverse reel and it's heavy. But performance wise for a reel over 50 years old it's exceptional ! I've used it for salmon and stripers up to 30 lbs and steelhead as well as various Florida gamefish and it always worked great. Was my go to reel for big fish for a long time. My son with all the new equipment we have insists on using it with my old 10 wt Fenwick on all of our Salmon River trips. Says its his guarantee Steelhead setup.
