    Default A Comparison

    I have a Ross Vexsis, size 3, that I use on a 6 wt. Would I be better off to go with a Momentun LT, size 4 on a 8 wt., or am I about equal on a size 4 Vexsis?

    A good reel for Pike, Walleye, Salmon, and Steelhead fishing is what I'm looking for.

    I would err towards the Momentum LT. Since you mentioned salmon and steelhead, I would want the better drag system. The main difference between the drag system of the Momentum LT and the Vexis is surface area. The Momentum LT has more of it. For high speed fish like salmon and steelhead, braking power is key.

    Also you would have a light saltwater reel if you choose to make a trip. Simply change the line out.

    After some more thinking time, I went with the size 4 Momentum LT. and a extra spool along with Rio Gold floating and a Rio sink tip for my size 8 Z-Axis. Trying it out in the lake out front was impressive. The Momentum feels like a well built machine. I wanted to pike and walleye fish on a nearby lake yesterday and today; but, the wind is to much for me both days using a canoe to get around. There is always tomorrow.
