Default Momentum LT

I'm thinking about picking up a size 4, rated for a 7, 8, or 9 line, for pike, salmon, steelhead. It'll be matched with a 8wt. Z-Axis. Any pros or cons I should consider since I'll have to order it. There are no Ross dealers up here.

Default Re: Momentum LT

One con: The radial pawls that determines rotational direction can break. If all three pawls break, or the whole unit breaks, the spool will free spool. I have not seen that on the #4 model, but I have seen it happen on larger models. I know a few people who travel around with spare pawl rings.
