Re: Deciding on a 4wt reel
Just my $.02 but be careful with click/pawl. While you can land quite sizable fish on a click/pawl just be careful that it isn't sloppy. If you get a sloppy click pawl you will get backlash when you strip line.
I believe you can get some reels for $100 or so like a Lamson Konic and they are a fine reel with a good drag.
