I have the 5/6 Gold for my 9' 5wt rod. I used it Idaho on the Henry's Fork. I like everything about it except for the reel handle. I think it is a little too small and is hard to take up line fast. For smaller trout it doesn't really matter but on the big guys it is important. I prefered the Bauer Little Mac more. It is a beautiful reel and has a molded larger handle.
