Default Re: Lamson Konic Reel

The CT in the 8'6" 5 weight configuration is a very moderate action rod. Overlining the rod with a 6 weight line will make the rod feel mushy. If you choose a Konic, go with a 5 weight line.

If you really want to go with a Konic, I would choose a Konic 1.5. I mounted a lined up Konic 2 on an 8'6" 5 CT, and the combination felt butt heavy. I'm not much of a stickler about rod and reel balance, but this outfit was way out of wack. Don't worry about backing capacity. How much backing do you really need for a 5 weight anyways? Yeah, really!
