Default Re: Best reel for Winston 8' 4wt tmf ?

Congratulations again on your new rod purchase. I just replied to your post in the fly rod forum. I too have been reel shopping lately. I'm very fortunate to have access to quite a few different reels. Lately I have really been into the click pawl reels. I just received an Abel TR2 in the mail that is quite nice. I'm not sure the clicker reels are for everyone though. I have several Lamson reels with the sweetest smoothest drag and as the previous poster said the Lamson Konic can be had for a very reasonable price right now. I have a Konic 1.5 on an Echo Carbon 8' 4wt for a truck rod that is just unbeatable. The ideal situation would be to take the rod to a few fly shops and try some reels on it, keeping in mind that spooled up with line out the tip will make the balance a little different. Not sure that is possible for many people though. Good luck again on your reel search.
