    I have an Echo Ion reel and LOVE it. The drag is great and it feels like a high quality reel. Its pretty big, which i dont mind, but you may be different. Mine is a 6/7 wt but i use it for 9wt and my Sage Bass rod.

    I took your advice and got a large arbour reel for right at 50$ spare spools are 26.99 and I went back to my fly shop and cast the reaper by mystic an thats what I'm leaning towards.

    Nice. Bass don't require much and they certainly don't care what brands you have.

    Agreed. I just wanted something in the middle of the road I don't need a 800 sage rod, but at the same time I don't want the wal mart special 40 $ out the door for rod reel line leader and a couple of flies if that makes any sense?
