    Default 10/11 wt Reels

    I would just want to ask do one get a nice 10/11wt saltwater reel with a good enouth drag to hold a 5-7kg fish for under R800 in the Western Cape.

    Im in search of one but everything is whell over R1500- infinity.

    And what would a nice 4/5wt reel for saltwater bee say for +-R500.

    If you still get these in this price range

    Ill even take 2nd hand.

    Hi Flippie,

    Have a look at this thread, I have the Okuma Integrity in 9/10wt, has worked perfectly so far, very good smooth disc drag system, stood up to the salt without any rust.

    Will probably cost about R700 bucks for that size.

    For the 4/5wt you can look at all 3 reels mentioned, the okuma sierra however is not a large arbour reel, the other 2 are. Would cost about R500 - R600 bucks.

    Hope this helps!

    I also saw this reel ET, havent heard of Storm before? Is it similar range to explorer/okuma/elbe?

    Looks like machined aluminium, not bad!
