Looking for some comments about the two reels in question.

I'm curious what you guys think about the difference between the Guru HD and the Guru,

GURU 3
5.50 oz
7,8WF7
150 yds 20#
$229

GURU 3 HD
6.10 oz
7,8WF7
150 yds 20#
$239


So what I'm seeing is for $10.00 more I get:
Cage design = heavier by 1.60 oz
And they say on the website it makes a great saltwater reel but on the Guru they don't mention saltwater use, I see people using it for saltwater so I don't see it being a problem.

Anyone compared the two side by side on an 8 weight for saltwater use? input would be much appreciated!

It might help thin backing, running line, mono, braid or other from getting caught between the spool and cage.
Saltwater ok.
