What they say about the Saracione Mark IV Salmon / Steelhead Spey Fly Reel in 4 1/4 " Spool Width: 1 5/32.” Weight: 16.6 ounces. Fly Line: 9,10,11. Capacity: 225+ yards. Application: The 4 ¼” is designed specifically to balance two handed rods 14ft 16ft in length, for 8/9/10 weight lines; at 16.6 ounces it does the job perfectly. This is the first model Mark IV reel Joe Saracione designed and built when he created the Mark IV series in 2007. Joe enjoys fishing 14 1/2ft to 16 ft rods for winter steelhead and this reel he designed specifically for that purpose. The spool capacity accommodates 225+yards of 30lb backing with the above specified lines. The drag system is designed for long rod salmon and steelhead fly fishing not Tarpon fishing or any other sport. Rod length creates line drag as the rod bends to a fish; the longer the rod the more drag is naturally created. The addition of a gear & pawl overrunning check along with the disc drag allows the Mark IV reels to be fished with very light drag settings to compliment their matching long rods (off the disc) and still control the spool RPM. The “Clicker” in the Mark IV is a drag system in itself not just an audible click as on all other disc drag reels, it is a “Gear & Pawl Drag”. This is a big rod, big line, big fish reel, designed for 2 handed rods. ----- Thanks for looking at my fly reel for sale, I do my best to photograph and represent my item for sale as best I can.
