Lamson Konic 1.5 or 2 on TFO Rod
 
Planning on purchasing a TFO Pro II 9' 5 WT and a Lamson Konic reel after some research and am wondering if the 1.5 or 2 size reel would be better?

Fishing small rivers, lakes and streams in Montana but also some bigger rivers such as the Missouri.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

I have a Konic 2 on my Clearwater 5 wt and it's a good match . Don't know how much of a difference there is in the 1.5 and the 2? Sure it's not much!

Go with the 2. My buddy uses a 1.5 with his 5wt and its alittle too small for my liking.

I was in the same situation a couple months ago.

If memory serves me right...the 2 has more line capacity.

Better to go with the 2....i got the same reel for my 6wt tfo mangrove. Great reel.

2 for sure. I use a Guru 2 on my 8' 4w TFO and it is a good match. The 1.5 will be too light especially for a 9' 5wt.

I say go with the 1.5. I like the lighter reels for all my rods. I have 1.5's on all my 5wts and 4wts.
