Re: Click reel - Battenkill or Drift?
I agree with going up a size in whatever lightweight reel you chose. In effect you get a large arbor reel and its advantages and maintain the classic look. I have a the Battenkill II on my 3 wt and I wish I had the III, both for retrieve speed and balance. Why makers put these little reels out there is to catch fisherpeople, not fish.
