Default Re: 8wt. Reel Advice

No, as I said, I bent a Tibor foot. But there is no difference to speak of in reel feet - they all have to fit into the same reel seat and are all thin on the ends.

The heavier the reel the better chance to bend it where it won't fit into the reel seat when dropped on tile or concrete, and bending it back requires some finess and filing - removing the anodizing. And it never fits the way it used to either.

For me, having bent one already, it's not a selling point to have it a part of the reel frame. The Tibor reel feet are currently $32.00 and I can order one myself, and not be without a reel at all since it is usable as it is.
