Thread: Light fly reel for 6-7wt rods.

  1. Default Light fly reel for 6-7wt rods.

    Hi.

    What would you guys think is a light fly reel for 6-7wt rods? Is 170gram considered light?

    unless my math is bad, that's 6 oz...and that's not light for a 6-7 in my book.

    Check out the specs on other reels for comparison and see for yourself.

    It's sorta heavy but not the worst that's out there. I definitely wouldn't consider it light though

    4.5 to 5oz would be on the lighter side of things.

    With that said, it's a difference of an ounce. I don't think that 1 oz will make or break your fishing day

    the difference in weight, as brookfieldangler pointed out, is not a deal killer nor maker on it's own. It matters in the context whole set up.

    What are you trying to figure out? So far you've gotten answers in search of the real question...-Mike

    Thank you very much for breaking it down in understandable pieces

    I thought it was obvious what I was trying to figure out? I'm unsure about what is considered lightweight for my rods. But brookfieldangler gave a really good answer to my question, so I'm glad.
