Default Re: 8wt. Reel Advice

Quote:
One thing I like on a saltwater (or any reel for that matter) is a captive threaded spool release
That's a good point and a selling point for the Hatch over the Galvan.

many reels have much stronger drags than angling circumstances are likely to call for.
From what I have read the drag on the Galvan T8 should be plenty sufficient for Reds/Specks & Bones.

For 2-3 max trips a year I may still be leaning to the Galvan.
