hey mtnman.....I use a 3wt GLoomis and put a lower end Loomis Adventure 3 on will love this weight in the park.....LRO has many nice reels that are machined bar stock and will give you the light weight that you want, I agree with Griff.....take your rod to LRO and you can try out a multitude of reels to get that fit you are looking for.....I don't reqret going with a $99 reel with my current set up, but I believe that my next set up will be a bit of an indulgence ( you can do that once the kids are out of school and on thier, pluse I wasn't sure about the 3wt when I picked that unit up, but now I swear by the lighter equipment for the park....

Heaven seems a little closer .........on a Smoky Mountain stream.......
