Default Spey reel question.

Hey guys first time posting here, forum looks great helped me a lot through the past. I had a question regarding my reel, I have a Grey G-Tec 14 foot 9 wt spey for salmon and fishing the mouths of some of the local rivers and I recently picked up a Loop Xact fly reel the 8-12. I haven't really had the opportunity to put it to the test with a salmon but I was wondering if anyone had any experience with these reels as far as there durability and drag system. I know they are not the best reels for the job but I just wanted to make sure I didn't come up short when the opportunity arises.Thanks guys.

Default Re: Spey reel question.

I dont know anything on that reel but with any of my reels I go light on the drag and palm the reel to control the pressure you want on the fish
