Default Re: Orvis Battenkill mid arbor V (7wt question)

Here a few things to consider.

Advantages
1. Due to larger diameter, the retrieval rate is faster.
2. Larger backing capacity.

Disadvantage
1. Sometimes the extra mass could make the rod feel butt end heavy.

With that said, I know some guys who use 9/10 reels on their 8 weights. They are happy with their rigs.
