Saracione Salmon Multi Mark IV
Model 4”: Spool Width: 1-5/32.” Weight: 15.0 ounces Fly line: 8,9,10 Capacity: 150+yards. Application: If you are going to own just one reel for all of your two handed rod fishing this is the reel. It comfortably balances most rods 13 ½ ft to 14 ½ ft long, that cast 7, 8, 9 & 10wt lines. All of the Mark IV disc drag models feature interchangeable spools. But since most anglers are simply changing modern fly line heads- spare spools are no longer necessary. But with this reel fitting such a wide assortment of rods, this is the reel to have that spare spool to help cover a wide range of line weights and line types. Basically setting up different backing capacities on each spool allows almost unlimited line selection. When we determine rod and reel balance; we like the rod to balance in your upper casting hand, in the casting position on the grip; with a fully loaded reel and shooting line extended through the rod guides. This will vary of course with different rod manufacturers, line weights and rod lengths but that is our target within reason.
