Default Re: Importance of Reel Size?

Hi Fingers,

It sounds pretty much like you've got it figured out. I can tell you what I use but won't try to talk you into anything.

LL Bean 13' 8/9 with an Orvis Odyssey IV reel.
Hardy 13' 9' 9 weight with a Hardy Cascapedia 8/9 reel.
Winston 15' 10/11 weight with an Orvis Vortex 11/12 reel

Big heavy reels each of them but they are each in perfect balance with their respective rods.
