It's certainly lighter than most other 4wt sized reels, but I don't want to look
like a goober....LOL!

BTW: The #2 Evo's were full price.
My first reaction tot the thread title was: They're light. Go big.

I would still say this is right and there's no reason to be concerned about looking goofy. The only reason I can see to shy away from a big light reel is if its so large it overly rubs yer gut while playing a big fish with the rod butt against yer torso.

Then again if your torso isn't squishy like mine, it may not be an issue.

I think the 3 and the 3.5 sizes were on sale. Kind of odd that it was cheaper
to buy the whole reel, rather than just a spool.

One of the salesmen told me that a dentist bought ALL of the remaining
G. Loomis made LL. Bean rods when they were marked down to $70-something
last winter. He then listed them on ebay....
