SA Large Arbor
This last salmon season I used an 8 weight TFO series one an SA Large Arbor system II 8/9 reel and a Rio versa tip line, combination worked flawlessly and handled Chinook to the mid forties. Since then I have purchased the TFO Ticr-x 8 weight and now the series one is the backup.
At the start of the season I did use a Lamson Velocity 3.5 but on the tenth fish I played the spool split into two halves leaving me with a fish thrashng around at the end of the line and a two hundred yard backing and flylline knot between the reel and the stripping guides. No more two part spools for me.
