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

I just spent the past week pike fishing with a 9 foot 9 weight Orvis Silver Label. I use an Orvis Odyssey III on it with a #9 DT line. The reel is a great balance to the rod and the drag is plenty more than ever needed.

So............. I wouldn't sweat the size weight thing, bigger is a good thing.
