Default Re: Reel for 7 wt Switch rod ?

The reel is a tough choice -- there are so many on the market. If I was buying one I'd look for a sealed no maint drag and spend as much as you can afford. A reel with a very good drag is critical on the SR. I'd buy an Abel.
If you buy a 7 weight line your reel needs to hold 8wt due to the size of the lines made for switch rods.
Looking forward to other answers on reels.
