Large Arbor Fly Reels

Only con is less backing capacity for given size (diameter) of reel.

Pros: larger diameter keeps line in larger loops therefore less coils therefore easier to stretch line. Faster retrieval rate. If fish takes you deep into backing, the larger arbor will still pick-up line faster than the bottom of a small arbor reel.

I think this is a non-issue...I can stuff more braid on my LA's than I would ever really need.

 

...no cons in my book.
