Re: Really need advice on reel size...
Great! Thanks for the replies...ya the Speedster #3.5 weighs at 5.7oz vs the #4 at 8.5....I know the majority of this added weight is due to the larger drag. I believe the edge #9 weighs in at 5-5.2 oz...just didnt want to be like "woah...should've got the 3.5" if is gonna be totally out of whack. I believe the larger drag is worth the extra weight, just didnt want to sacrifice alot of cast and feel. I'll have to take a look at the other reels you mentioned, definitely liking the Hardy but not so much on the reflective glare finish. Thanks again and to hear more from you all.
