It is a beauty. I look at this thread daily.
I just weighed a few of my (similar) Reels.
I took them off the following:
Burkheimers...pretty "light" rods, eh?
And while doing so, I recall selling a few Danielsson's a few years back (which I admire and like greatly) as they were simply too light to balance.
I mean if they are a bit(?) too heavy, well we learn to grip up a bit, yes----too light?
Well they always feel too light
No place to grip farther down.
if you want to fish with a reel that has the traditional mojo of almost a Hundred Years of big anadromous fishing do not be too dismayed by a few "ounces".
My views and perhaps the views of a few others.
I wondered about all these type of things when I was considering going "Clicker" vs. dragger.
So I offer it up for consideration to anyone who is thinking......
