Hi,

Looking for a new reel plus spare spool to cover the requirement of sufficent capacity for a DH 12wt Airflo beach line plus backing. Reel would also be used, with different lines, for tarpon work and hopefully GTs in the not to distant future. Something like 300 yds of 50-65lb backing would be required. I do have LW Danielsson reels which I like a lot but the 8/12 will not be large enough.
Any help would be most welcome.

Cheers

Alan

I use 50# gelspun, the HD 9thirteen is a good option.
