    Re: Dumb question regarding reel size

    Saltwater Reel, spool at least 50# class braided line and get about 275 yard of backing with the 8wt line. You'd get the yardage and strength, but watch your fingers.

    Re: Fenwick Aetos or Echo XL 5wt 9ft

    Thank you for the insight itinerant... seems like it is safer bet to go with the Aetos since the location where I fish is kinda windy.

    Re: Fenwick Aetos or Echo XL 5wt 9ft

    I just got back from Basspro and wiggled the 6wt Aetos, they don't have the 5wt on the rack. It was nice.

    What line did you use with the 6wt? is it true that you must overlined the Aetos?

    Update,
    Keep in mind, this is for 9-12wt saltwater reels and not for chalk stream trout reels.
