Hello All -

I am looking to invest in a new reel specifically for my new custom 4pc Burkheimer 7115 that is coming in shortly.

The ones I'm primarily looking at are:

  1. Loop Classic 79
  2. Saracione Mark V Salmon
  3. Hardy Perfect Taupo wide spool
  4. Olson 3 3/4 pawl

Obviously a pretty wide price range. But I want something new, classic looking, click/pawl, and either made in US or Europe. None of the Korean/China stuff.

Is the Loop made in Sweden? Anyone have any experience with it?

Yeah, most those reels there are far too heavy for that rod. I'd want something sub 10oz. Some of those reels you list are far above that. Also at least one, if not two of those reels you list are not click and pawl.

If Olson, I'd go 3 1/2". I'd add the Hardy Bougle 3 3/4" to the list. That's what I have on my 5/7 wt 11'7" rod.

I was equating click/pawl and gear/pawl to be similar in what im looking for.

But thanks, i didnt realize how light the rod was. I've emailed Jim over to Just-Reels to see if he can help me out with some olson, bellinger ideas.
