Default Re: Question on reel weight for a 9' 6wt.

I tried my Orvis BBSII on my Redington CT 5 wt (8'6") and found the set up very tip heavy. Next time out I swtched to an old (heavier) Okuma Sierra and found fishing the rig much more pleasurable. In that case, the difference was noticeable and too light a reel was the culprit.
