Default Re: Really need advice on reel size...

"Is over sizing a 9-wt rod with a 10-wt reel a terrible idea?"

Not in the least. With the exception (just my opin) of very light rods 'bigger is better' as the reel is a counter balance for everything beyond your hand on the cork.

Reel weight choice frequently comes down to do you want to fish tip light or tip heavy.
