Default Re: Sage One 990

Another idea I think I can make work with my current line up is move around a couple of lines and free up my Super 7, use my Super 6 on my 7 wt. (more than enough backing for my 7 wt. purposes @110' 20#) and move my WF 6 to an Abel #1. This frees up my Super 7, which is a little wider but not as deep. It's rated at 8/175' 20# - but I could use Gel Spun and probably get 200' 30# on it with room to spare.

Anyone use Gel Spun to give them the ability to use a smaller rated reel to accomodate a larger line? The balance of the Super 7 on the 990 is excellent. I know plenty of people who use more backing to accomodate a larger reel, but don't often hear about people doing it in reverse - using Gel Spun to accomodate a smaller line rated reel.

Cheers,
Mike.
