Ended up finding a good deal on the 8/10 for my 9wt. I have some 30 lb backing so I plan on putting that on and can report back what the capacity is. Won't be getting it out in the salt until late April but have high hopes for this budget reel.
Has anyone tried the Echo Bravo reels? They have been out for over a year now and there isn't much out there about them. Looking to pick up a reel for my 9 wt salt set up and trying not to spend too much. Seems like they are Echo's answer to the Redington Behemoth, but with a sealed drag. The one year warranty is a little disappointing but I'm still new to the salt and will probably end up upgrading in a few years anyways.
