    Default 9wt reel

    Hi everyone ! I am in the market for a 9wt reel to pair with my new redington predator rod . I have looked at the following ...

    Redington delta
    Shilton sl6
    Wade chanos
    Nautilus nv

    The delta is a lot cheaper than the rest , but has a sealed drag . I will mainly be using this for tiger and light saltwater .

    I am not sure whether the R3000 price difference is worth it between the delta and the rest of the reels .

    If anyone has a 2nd hand shilton sl6 I would be happy to take it off you

    You don't really need a hectic reel for that intended purpose.

    My recommendation would be to check the specs of each reel ito weight, and then match that to the rod, and in my book, seeing as it's for light work, the lighter the better.

    My personal opinion, and some might disagree, but is that you shouldn't use a sealed drag reel for salt water. Sure, its sealed, but the salt water still gets in...and they are not easy to clean.

    Look at the Galvan and Ross reels.
