WTB Reel for my 8wt 11' helios 2 switch
Since this rod is very light and I expect to do some saltwater fishing for striped bass with it, I am not really interested in a click and pawl. I'm a newbie so I don't exactly know what I'm talking about and you could still convince me to get one I guess! Main application remains atlantic salmon after all.
Otherwise what I am looking for is more along the lines of a Lamson Litespeed, Speedster, etc. (the number 4 models which are rated for 10-11 wt lines). ARX looks nice as well with the full cage design (3.5 seems to be the right size). Yes you guessed it, I love me some lamson reels, but other quality companies are fine too!
As for budget, I guess depending on your offer is we could go up along the lines of 350, although I am more interested in the 200-250 range.
We can discuss shipping and payment methods in private (I do have a paypal account).
