Hey guys I need a saltwater spey reel.
Anybody have a favourite they want to recommend.
Disc drag would be nice I'm thinking.
Can't risk my Hardy's in the salt. I had a near FUBAR with my
Ultra lite disc. salmon.

used them?

Hey Eric have you used any of those?
Any one of the ones you listed and a few more would work just fine, but I am looking for feedback from guys who have actually used the product.
I hope to be able to use the new boat I am going to get to access some river systems that are open to the pacific. Then I can fish from beach to headwater no problem.

I have used islander reels and many people i know swear by them when it comes to the salt. Same with the abel reels.
Nautilus and teton i have not personally but they are well known for big drag busting fish.

Saltwater reels

Mr Phearless,the Snowbee XS reel is totally salt water friendly and definitely awesome. I have several of their 1112's and as you know spend many months fishing the saltwater...these reels are available in Canada...and a special note here...they have just released a casett system that will be a user friendly system...currently only available in their 7/8 ...but finally a Saltwater reel of substance with spare pools that don't break the bank.and with a drag that does as asked.
