I purchased a 9-11 teton last year, one large arbor, one small like the reel works fine on albies, stripers, and blues, but forget tuna, you will lose your hand. This all goes to prove it depends what you are fishing for. I have been wanting to come up with an anti-reverse reel, but being retired money comes hard. I guess shark and tuna fishing on a beer pocketbook doesn't work. Offshore I guess I will have to use my Billy Pate bonefish, and hope that 250 yards plus flyline is enough. Go with the Tiogue or Teton can't lose.
