Also, you mentioned the T6. Are you just saying you like the bronze color the best or were you suggesting putting a T6 on an 8wt?
The Sage 1880 would probably work for me too but I just have a thing for the machined reels & anodized aluminum.
T6 was a typo...I meant T8 on the 8wt...in bronze. Just to make it obnoxious looking on that bright green blank!
i would agree with having a thing for anodized aluminm, especially if its crazy colors!
I have a very old base level galvan reel, its nice for what it is.
