Tibor Tailwater good on a GVX 9' 6 wt.?
 
Have a new Winston and wondering if anyone with this reel thinks it would be a good match. Thanks in advance!

Tibor specs are 3.25 inch diameter, and 1.25 inches wide. It holds 100 yards of 20lb backing a WF 6 line, so that will work for freshwater. Saltwater fishing for bonefish might make you want more backing, but I fish mostly freshwater. I was **this** close buying one of these reels a couple of years ago. A shop was dropping Tibor, and it was close to half price! Snoozed, and then it was gone.......
