correct reel and rod wt for reds need help pls!
Hello all. Need some help. I just swapped out my new 7/8 TFO reel for a 9 wt and am deciding on either a 8 or 9 wt rod. I've been told the 9 will be better in the wind and have red that as well but the Bass Pro guy said the 9 would be overkill as in like a crane and another guy also said it was too much. Not sure if the BP guy knows his stuff. Another guy who used to be a guide recommended getting and 8 wt rod and overloading it w/ 9 wt line. Anyone! Please advise. I'm making a purchase and getting out there soon. Thanks. Andrew
