    Hey Chris, sorry to bother again. You seems to post the most knowledgeable post and comments. I would really like to an overnight sword trip on my boat. I have never sword fished before, is there any tips you could lend or maybe the possibility of talking you into going with, it would not cost you a dime, just want the knowledge. My boat is a 2670 Glacier bay island runner Cat. Twin 130 hondas with 180 gallons of fuel. Thanks for the info

    The Ion is more than adequate. Its not the lightest, but it is a good workhorse reel. Solid and with a decent drag. I own 3 and did own a 10/12 before selling it to a buddy who wanted an inexpensive bluewater outfit.

    The 10/12 sells for 129.99 and the extra spools are 50 bucks. pretty hard to beat for the performance given thus far

    Chris,

    Would you still recommend the Echo Ion for a cheap saltwater fly reel? I'm trying to replace some gear that got stolen out of my boat last weekend, so I'm not dropping $500 on a new reel after that. Feathercraft said it's a freshwater reel and extra care needs to be taken using it in salt. What do you think? I'm also looking at Lamson Konics and Gurus. Also, do they make an Ion that will fit a 12 wt?

    Thanks,
