Re: Pairing for Scott Radian 5wt
Randy, You are among the first to get one so you may have to lead the way. I suggest trying several loaded reels from your own or your friends shop collection, even if they have the wrong line on them, to get a sense of balance. The one that is just right will set the (empty) weight standard, say 4.8 oz. (hypothetically, but it will be in that ball park) then you can search reels you like for one of that weight with the capacity and performance you want. I would think Nautilus and Galvan would be candidates but Ross Reels are built in the same town as the Radian so they need to be considered as well. What are your reel preferences?
