Default Reels for the Long rods ?

I have a 2 VXP 2 handers , 5120 using a Teton/Tioga LA #10 holding 310gn.scandi and a 7133 with a Teton9/11 holding a 450 grn. I have been advised the Skagit will most likely not fit ( I have not tried but it already looks tight).

I could use the 9/11 on the 5 wt. ( I guess ) and do know where I can get another if it works with the Skagit.

If not , what are my options ? I don't want to spend a fortune but will do what it takes . So far , I have done a little looking at Galvin , Allen and Speyco.

So, whats it going to take to make this right or am I ok as I stand ?

Thanks
East

You know I am a rookie at this, but don't forget to consider the old reels. They are not a disadvantage due to the needed weight they carry.

That is what I am hoping to find at a good price The Tetons are heavy compared to the stuff today but it appears they are not going to be big enough , maybe the 9/11 on the 5 wt. I'll have to check it in the AM.

I just saw the Hardy Marquis is new for 325 , a lot less than the Speyco, nice reel but holy cow 800 bucks ! I thought the Marquis was a vintage reel for big bucks ?
