WTB: 4" Beaudex

looking for a 4" Beaudex for my 10'6" switch. I don't mind if there are a few scuffs/boat rash on it as long as the internal workings are solid.

Thanks,
Randy

PS: if anyone has any better suggestions for my Beulah 7/8 switch (balance-wise, etc.), I'd be interested in hearing them. I'd prefer a Young-made reel.

Hi Randy ..............I have that rod and I think you would have a better balance with something in the 3 3/4" to 3 7/8" size. I use a Hardy St. John (3 7/8 narrow drum) and a Hardy Marquis Salmon 1 ( 3 3/4 narrow drum). My friend has that reel in the 3 3/4" size and it balances his Deer Creek 6 wt switch really nice. Hope this helps. Dave

Is this just another excuse for me to buy more rods ?

Randy I think the same, I have a 4'' beaudex for my 12' 6'' beulah spey. Personally I love the reel but might be a bit too big for your rod

good to know, thanks guys.

I'd prefer a Young-made reel, are there any that would work with that? Ideally, I want it to hold 100 yds of backing plus shooting line plus the Tonic head.
