Do any owners have any feed back on 6-8 wt. Reels? Good, bad, whatever, for marsh use.thanks
Like other have said... Galvan are underrated. They are very popular on the west coast, but do not get as much attention in the eastern US.
I have been using them for years, along with Tibors and Abels and use my Galvan reels 95% of the time.. Why? Simple... They work, have fantastic drags and are very light.
I have a the following:
Galvan T-6 on my 7wt
T-8 on 8wt
T-8 on 9wt
T-10 on 10wt
T-12 on 11wt
T-16 on 11wt
Abel Super 12 on 11wt
Abel Super 12x on 11wt
My "go to" tarpon reel is the T-12 & T-16 and they have never failed my yet. All the Galvans have butter smooth drags and are very durable.
I wouldn't hesitate to buy another Galvan if I needed a new reel. Definitely check them out. You will not be sorry..
