  1. Default Reel to match rod

    Hi All
    I have just ordered up a Sage Z-Axis fly rod 10ft 7wt and I was wondering what reel you would recommend to match this rod?
    Thanks in advance
    Richard

    Hi Richard,

    You didn't give a price range so I will give my personal choice. I know you are going after Steelhead and that calls for a good drag. Here are my choices:

    1. The Nautilus FW #7




    The Galvan Torque T8

    [LEFT]

    3. The Ross Momentum




    If the Momentum is too heavy you might consider the Cimarron. If Price is not the controlling factor the Nautilus NV 6/7 would be my first choice.

    I'm a Lamson fan. I think a Litespeed 3.5 would set that rod up well. The 3.5 size would likely be a bit heavy for a 9' 7wt, but not a 10' version.
