Also, is it wrong of me to hate woven graphite reel seats? I don't know why I do...I just can't get past it.


No, and yes. Wood seats absorb salt water and split. Thus, if you plan to hit something tidal, its metal or graphite. The latter still looks nicer than the former, but wood is prettier still.

I, on the other hand, have an unreasonable hatred of sliding band reel seats. The last three rods I bought have had these monstrosities. I need hit kbob up, speaking there of...


Wood is among the heavier seat inserts as well.

Thanks for that link, I picked up an A3 9ft 9 wt for 200$. Good deal. Now tilt, I need a reel for it. Get on it!

Allen. It's what I have on my 9wt and it performs very nicely. Remember, you aren't looking for the lightest reel ever made cause you gotta balance that rod.

LL Bean. It probably came out of the same sweatshop that made the Allen reel, and you work there so why not save some money?

Also acceptable, Pflueger Medalist 1498. Only because I haven't said that in at least two days.

Well, I want something with some stopping power. I have thought about just going with Ross evo or Lamson lightspeed, because of the bean discount. I have a hard time thinking an Allen drag system will hold up.

What would happen if I put one of my Medalists on your Winstons? Would it be like a Reese's peanut butter cup, or would it be an unwieldy mess?

I'll let you know the first week of august, because I am going to beat the ever loving piss out of that thing on my trip. It's on my 6wt and slated for full time streamer duty.

The allen drag (post-defective bearing replacement) seems good enough. It smoothly handled a delaware rainbow in big water, but the bighorn and yellowstone will be the true test.

That's just silly. I hooked the 9wt up to my kid and had her tear ass around the yard. Soaked reel in water first. No problem.

But ya, go ahead and put a ultralight reel on it. That'll feel goot.

yeah - can't see how the ross let alone the lamson will balance it..but you won't know until you try the combo. I tried both the lamson and the ross on my zaxis and found the lamson too light...the ross BARELY heavy enough to balance it...and that was in 5wt.

A 9ft 9wt A3 i would think would need something beefier to balance.
