I use Litespeed 3.5's, and 4's. I like them because they have decent drag systems, are light, and geometrically are well-proportioned from a functional point of view. They also appear to hold up to salt water quite well. I've used a 3.5 with a 6/7/8 Windcutter and a 6/7 Mid Spey. I've used 4's with larger Mid Speys, up to 9/10. If I were you, I would go with the 4: it may seem too large, but it is a relatively light reel and the additional capacity never hurts.Lambchop said:I had been thinking of a Lamson Litespeed 3.5 or maybe the 4. Anyone using one of these?
