The most important thing about DD fly reels is the end retrieve rate, and this is best, for things in the 8/9/10 size is a LA 10#, or 4.5 to 5 inches diameter. The reel weight is incidental so long as it holds about 400 yards of your backing line, like GsP. The bigger the LA diameter the better the retrieve rate, and you can use it for rods 8 thru 12.Unless you are catching whales. I suggest a Nautilus, since they are pretty good stuff. Maxg.
