Looking for non Van Staal reel suggestions to pair with ODM Genesis 10 foot stick.

My VS 250 has to big a spool and the line is constricted going through the first 25MM guide.

What are you using?

I use the spheros 5k/6k (swapping spools on occasion) and I love it. Such a light, maneuverable setup it's easy to forgot you're fishing a 10 footer.

 

I think the 15-16oz class of reels is definitely the sweet spot so I could see the VS 250 being a bit heavy on there for me personally.

 

As a bonus I like the cosmetic match with that pairing as well

The VS 250 is more for the 11-foot genesis. I believe they build the guide layouts with a specific VS model in mind but correct me if I'm wrong. The 11' Genesis and VS 250 has been my main plugging setup ever since I purchased it a month ago.

6000 Spheros SW 2021, 6000 Saragosa SWA, or even the SaltX 6000 works well on the 10 footer. 

The Slammer IV 5500 BLS is coming this month and that should be a perfect reel for a 10 foot genesis.

Are you talking here the 1-6 or the 3/4 -4 model?

If you are looking into longer distances the Ultegra 5500 will be a good match. I use this reel in my 11 3/4-4.

However for common casting the Saragossa 6000 or even the 5000 will fit the bill.

Yeah. 250 on the 11’ 1-6 is perfection IMO. 
 

I have nothing to add to OP’s question. Sorry.
