Default Re: Gettin a new fly reel

The difference between the II and the III is the III weighs a bit more and is a bit larger in diameter. Which one for you depends on what you are going to use it for, and the weight of the rod......You want a balanced outfit....the reel shoud not be significantly heavier that the rod..if it is the outfit is not balanced and you will get fatigued quicker when you fish. I like my outfits balance point to be no more than an inch in front of the grip. The other consideration is you can put more backing on a III...especially if you are using a 5 wt line. The III, IMHO, is a better all around choice for most fishing
